wd-xml-names: prefix scope with respect to entities

III. please include examples which describe processing in the presence of entities

i have understood the bindings which apply to entities to be those present in
the dynamic context which is in effect a the time the parser "inserts" the
entity value into the parse stream.

given the present content of the wd, i believe that is the only possible
interpretation since no binding mechanism is provided which includes the dtd
within its scope.

as i suspect, however, that such a mechanism is necessary, one must clarify
whether the dynamic scoping rules apply there as well, whether the dynamic
context is that of the definition or that of the reference, or whether,
perhaps lexical scoping rules would apply.
