So the parser has to check the entity literal multiple times? It initially
has to check that the literal is WF "on it's own" (with no namespace
implications-- i.e., bar:baz is legal because namespaces are never in effect
in the DTD)-- then the literal value must be checked for WFness in every
context it is included (with namespace processing in effect)?

This seems right... but it also seems very burdensome on the parser...
