The declaration is for "content only". A second declaration form for "self +
content" is not necessary. Either the PI form or the method of putting pseudo
attributes on "physical-entity-specific" declarations is sufficient. For the
former method, the PI should be permitted in external entities in addition to
within the prologue, in order to afford the necessary control over declarations.
