The table of valid node children in clause 1.1.1 says inter alia:

# EntityReference -- Element, ProcessingInstruction, Comment, Text,
#         CDATASection, EntityReference

# Entity -- no other nodes [permitted as children]

whereas the discussion of Entity nodes in clause 1.3 says:

# The structure of the child list is exactly the same as the
# structure of the child list for an EntityReference with the same
# nodeName value.

This is a flat contradiction.  Editors, can you comment?
