   Re: [xml-dev] Seeking implementation advice on WFC:PE Between Declaratio

It seems to me that the following would only violate the validity
constraint, since it doesn't have a PE reference in a DeclSep:

  <!ENTITY % p "ANY> <!ATTLIST foo ">
  <!ELEMENT foo %p;

But I don't think I treat these cases differently in my parser.

Several of these constraints were added in errata to clean up things
that were not properly constrained in the first edition, and it would
not surprise me if this has led to redundancies.
