Nothing there suggests the need for entities in the XSLT output.
If you have an entity reference & f o o b a r ; in the file and that
entity is defined by a DTD to be __something__ then when your vendor
processes the XMl file, the XML parser will (or should) report the same
thing whether the file has & f o o b a r ; or __something__ in it.
An entity reference is indistinguishable from the direct use of the
entity which it references.
If the vendor tools require an ASCII encoded file taht's a different matter and can be addressed by <xsl:output encoding="US-ASCII"/>
