IMHO internal entities should be remapped to use URIs:
<!ENTITY blah "blah">
<entity name="blah" system="#XPTR=ID(xml-entity:blah)" />
The entity mechanism is not so useful in XML, given that it duplicates
the logical interface to storage already provided by URI/MIME/HTTP.
There should be no way to specify entities used directly (e.g. used as
&xxx;) in XSchema. The existing declarations should be kept as they are
and left to wither or grow naturally as XLinks become available.
