While I agree that this would be more useful, there is the problem that many
applications might deliberately avoid ENTITY attributes *because* of the
lack of support in XSL.

The apparently under utilised aspects of XML 1.0: notations and unparsed
entities would, I believe, experience somewhat of a revival if there was
good support for them in XSL.

I realise this is a catch-22, especially for a W3C spec writer, but there
certainly seems to be a desire in this group to have ENTITY attribute

Of course, another alternative would be to deprecate notations and unparsed
entities in XML and hope that Namespaces and XLink come to the rescue.
