FIG and BODY/postion do two different things. FIGs are scrollable and
BODY/position is not. One simple solution might be to add a scrollable=no
attribute to the FIG element. 
The external entity method would also work for me and I agree with the pox on
PIs.
>	<!ENTITY foobar SYSTEM "http://foo.com/bar.html.inc">
>	&foobar;
The URL update problem could be minimized by using a relative path.

It is not clear from the DTD comments that it is legal to point the FIG SRC
attribute to an HTML doc instead of just images. Another side effect of the
FIG element is scaling of images. You might want to point these options out
in the comments.
