OK, my mistake. I misread section 4 (I missed the fact that the '&' and
';' would be passed through too).
But looking through the list of MathML named entities it looks as
tho' there's plenty there which could cause a lot of trouble in an
encoding declaration. Aside from the XML magic five and the MathML
whitespace entities, how about,
<?xml version="1˙0" encoding="UTF-8+names"?>
So I think we need a complete list of the predefined entities from XHTML
and MathML which _aren't_ covered by sections 6 and 7.
