Neither SGML nor XML support redefinition of entities mid-DTD, so it's
not surprising that a tool for processing SGML and XML doesn't support
it.  Actually, the fact that the first definition of an entity is the
one that takes effect is a feature that many DTDs use, especially when
it comes to supporting customising of the DTD -- customisations
typically involve making your own definition of a parameter entity
that will be read before the definition of the parameter entity in the
body of the DTD.
