What you are citing is the ability to define the entity structure of 
an XML document.  This doesn't prevent you from using W3C Schema to 
test for constraint violations of the elements and attributes.

You are still allowed to say:

  <!DOCTYPE novel
  <!ENTITY bar SYSTEM "bar.xml">

... and then validate its content with a W3C Schema processor.

I hope this helps.
