Fortunately you have chosen the unintended meaning of the ambiguous
wording. When it says "may not be XML" it means "may be not XML".
This is clarified in the errata:
E25 Clarification Source: minutes XML-Syntax 1999-02-24 E30
Amend the first sentence of the third paragraph to read: "An
unparsed entity is a resource whose contents may or may not be text,
and if text, may be other than XML."
The original text could be interpreted as saying that unparsed
entities which are text can't be XML, which is wrong.
