I say yes -- it's the equivalent of using a parameter entity to define a content 

One can imagine an XSchema where the top-level element declarations themselves 
are relatively useless but exist so that an XLink can refer to their content 
models.  This is a bit hacky, but it's the only way I can see to duplicate the 
horiz.model and vert.model entities in John Cowan's Itsy B
Bitsy Teeny Weeny Simple Hypertext DTD.
