I can't see anything wrong with that.

(Provided it's not in the internal subset of course, but presumably it
isn't, and your workaround would be just as wrong there.)

What error message do you get?

><!ELEMENT root %test;>

If all else fails, you could have the parameter entity be the
whole element declaration.
