Discussed at SVG f2f Manly, Jan 2012. Scope is greater than SVG; we don't want
an SVG specific XML parsing mode or to break existing XML workflows. The HTML
entity set is fairly small, with poor Unicode coverage; in general people will
need to type the characters needed. 

For specific entities,the internal DTD subset is always available (and may be
quite useful for nbsp, znj,zwnj and suchlike non-visible characters).

It is possible that later work (such as XML5) will solve this and if so, SVG
could benefit from that in the future.
