I like the idea of it.

And on a different problem but, I think, similar solution, could you do
local character data mapping the same way? I'd like a nice way of being able
to use some transliteration when hand-editing XML and have it mapped to the
appropriate Unicode code points (eg I'd like to say "in this element, map B
to &#x03B2;")

Mind you, I need to be able to map more than one character.

This sounds like a job for notations, where each mapname is a notation.
