Not cleaner, identical.  In the absence of declarations for entities
referenced in the instance, the instance is not well-formed.  On both
my proposal and any subset proposal without entity declarations, as
well as SOAP as it stands, no entities other than the "famous five"
would have declarations, so any reference to other than the "famous
five" would render a document ill-formed.
