The first SGML document I ever worked on was about R&D at AT&T and it
took me ages to work out why it didn't parse :-)

I don't think banning é would fly - it's part of MathML and HTML.

It's possible that having the HTML + ISO + MathML entity sets hardwired
into Web browsers and explicitly allowing programs to handle undeclared
entities in such a way would get somewhere.
