yes you have:-) we even turned up in person to an xml f2f meeting (at a
TPAC prior to what became xml 1.1 in the end) asking for use of entity
names in fragments without an explicit doctype to be well formed in xml 2.

Given the situation now, I wouldn't change xml handling in
application/xml, but I would change it in application/xhtml+xml which is
currently completely broken: it's not possible (without severely abusing
FPI identifiers) to have a file that is served with that mime type that
is both valid according to the xml tool chain and well formed according
to the xml parsers used by browsers supporting html5 if entity
references are used.
