Don't "unexpanded entity references" address this?

2.5. Unexpanded Entity Reference Information Items

XML Definition: Section 4.4.3, Included If Validating

A unexpanded entity reference information item serves as a placeholder by
which an XML processor can indicate that it has not expanded an external
parsed entity. There is such an information item for each unexpanded
reference to an external general entity within the content of an element. A
validating XML processor, or a non-validating processor that reads all
external general entities, will never generate unexpanded entity reference
information items for a valid document.
