Aha, okay, your "HTML 4 does not have a notion of well formedness or
any lesser criterion than validity" is misleading then, the examples
are legal SGML Text Entities which is a higher level of quality than
"well-formed" as conformance to the document type and link type
declarations are required of such entities.

That's no conformance level of HTML4 though, just like "well-formed
parsed entity" is no conformance level of XHTML. All XHTML and HTML4
conformance levels require a document type declaration. So it seems
no change is required here, do you agree?
