XSchema Question 4: XML 1.0/XSchema interactions

In some of Peter's latest examples, he's used 'traditional' general entities. 
I like the results, but don't know that this belongs in the official spec.

Should the use of traditional DTD entity (and other) notation be encouraged in 
the design, development, and use of XSchemas?


Keep in mind that XSchema 1.0 is not itself providing entity services.

I think in the long run, entity services will be provided by a non-XSchema and 
non-DTD mechanism. For now, though, we need to be able to interoperate. Peter 
suggested a separate 'note' - I think this is a good idea.
