I, for one, hope external parsed entities *do not* go away.

While some people may use them incorrectly, why take them away when they 
can be used correctly?

I need them when I need to handle *one* XML file in *many* small manageable 
pieces ... I don't need them for re-use or for sharing, but they provide a 
useful convenience.
