  This specification is defined in terms of the DOM. The language in
  this specification assumes that the user agent expands all entity
  references, and therefore not include entity reference nodes in the
  DOM. If user agents do include entity reference nodes in the DOM, then
  user agents must handle them as if they were fully expanded when
  implementing this specification. For example, if a requirement talks
  about an element's child text nodes, then any text nodes that are 
  children of an entity reference that is a child of that element must
  be used as well.

the SVG Working Group is now able to recognize this as a problem...
