So far, I haven't seen one good enough argument for getting rid of
entities - or anything else in XML 1.0.

Remember, one feature that made XML attractive and that set it above
proprietary formats was the proposition that XML 1.0 documents would be
readable for many years to come.  By all means layer additional features on
top if you have to, but remove things at your peril.

Kind regards
