<& in internal entity values

Can anyone tell me why productions [9] of the XML 1 spec says that the &
char is not allowed within an entity declaration but the section 2.4 on
Char Data below says that they are. Section 2.4 seems to suggest that
the following is o.k.

<!ENTITY   punctuation    "<&" >

Is it?

Thanks in advance,
