There may be such things, but they aren't conformant.  Every XML processor
has to at least look at ATTLIST declarations in the internal subset so
that it can do attribute defaulting.  The external subset and other
external parameter entities can be ignored completely, but not the
internal subset.

Oh yes, I don't think there's any question of changing instance syntax here.
