Hi, 

Yes I need to update those files, for unicode 4.x and other things, so
your question is well timed.

Would you want the "master" file for each group of entities to include
the others by external enity reference, much as (say) the XSLT2 map
files are set up with the ISO 8879 set having  iso8879map.xsl which
xsl:includes isoamsamap.xsl and friends. or would you want the "master"
file to have copies of the entity definitions.

Essentially anything along those lines is possible, as you may have seen
the entities are all derived from the unicode.xml file, and how they are
grouped and split into different files is "just a bit of xsl".

If for example docbook wanted some custom set of entities that was
larger than html but smaller than mathml, but consistent with both (so
far as that is possible:-) It would be easy to derive such a set by
adding some annotations to unicode.xml and then cranking the handle...

David
