PARAMETER entities & WFness

Since for well-formed but not valid docs I can't rely on external
parameter entities to be read and included, is it true that

parameter entities really only have one use for us in our
well-formed-but-not-valid documents: to alter the order in which entity
declarations are parsed?

If so, can anyone think of a situation where this would need to be
resorted to?
