True, but I think it violates this one:

Well-formedness constraint: PE Between Declarations
The replacement text of a parameter entity reference in a DeclSep
MUST match the production extSubsetDecl.

since %ATTLIST; occurs in the position of a DeclSep.

Compare with these test cases in the XML test suite,
in directory xmltest/not-wf/not-sa: 009.xml, 010.xml, 011.xml
