Well, here goes ;)
I would still like the ability to output other entities. I know it is 
not part of canonical XML; but they exist in the XML spec.
Because GenX intercepts all &, it cannot be layered at this point. So 
you introduce a hard limitation.
A first step would be to add a call to addEntity(entityName), except 
that it does not allow entities in attributes. I understand that 
allowing that is much more complicated, as it introduces the need for 
reusing the text accumulation interface for attributes... This might be 
a good idea anyway, if only to allow to use AddCharacter in entities.
