I think you must be joshing, but just in case you're not: no, it would only
be an auxiliary grove if the thing parsed were the name itself (e.g., I
construct a grove consisting of a list of character data nodes constructed
from a string or token). If the name is used to find some source data
(e.g., another SGML document entity) and then *that* is parsed, the result
cannot be an auxiliary grove.
