Thank you for your comment.
As explained in the issues document (see description below) it was decided 
to set the type to error, which was not done for some reason,  and it is 
still marked as not-wf.   But, as Mike comment indicates this particular 
test does not contains an attribute value with a reference to an undeclared 
entity. Could someone from the working group take a closer look at this 
test? Also, could someone address the comment on having the issues document 
not open to the public? The issue with 
xmlconf/xmltest/not-wf/not-sa/005.xml was address in issue TS11 in the 
issues document: 
http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2002/02/xml10-test-suite-issues#TS11

Issue  TS11:


Invalid documents that contain non-recoverable errors:



   There is a general assumption that when a processor parses

   documents that are invalid, but otherwise well-formed, it

   will only report recoverable errors.  However, the following

   documents contain references to entities that have not been

   declared, a validity constraint failure, that are also not

   recoverable because the references occur in attribute values.

   For a test harness to distinguish this case, there needs to

   be such an indication in the test description.  Until that

   mechanism is added, it would be best to set the type of

   these tests to "error" so that inappropriate conformance

   failures are not reported.

Proposed
resolution Set the type of these tests to "error".
