it would mean that entities in attribute values could not be resolved 
in the dynamic context of parsing the attribute value itself. the rules 
would be  those of normal namespace scope. an in-line namespace 
processing mechanism already requires the namespace declarations to be 
handled before the names of the attributes can be resolved, which must 
be done before the values can be normalized. which would mean that 
entity resolution could occur in the attribute value normalization 
phase. which is still before the element is reported to the application.
