I think the major confusion around entities always arose from their 
connection to DTDs. Having given up DTDs, MicroXML can then choose to 
build in some predefined entity definitions, or not.  It seems like a 
small issue?  But on the whole I think it would cause *more* confusion 
rather than less to drop &lt and &amp.  People are probably more 
familiar with those than with the numeric references. Just a feeling.
