The design of xml entities is that the physical distribution of the
document overfiles should not influence the logical document represented
by the xml markup. Xpath (and so xslt) strictly adheres to this
viewpoint and so the entities are fully expanded (leaving no record) as
the input tree is constructed.

You have two choices, edit your included documents so the top level
element has an id or edit your including document so that the reference
is marked, eg wrap each entity reference in an element.

<fileref id="myfile">&myfile;</fileref>

Which could be done using any regexp capable editor or perl or sed or
something like that.
