About PE "Color.datatype" in XHTML 1.1 DTD

XHTML 1.1 DTD is including "xhtml-datatypes-1.mod",
and parameter entity "Color.datatype" is defined in this module.
In XHTML 1.1 flat DTD, however, the parameter entity declaration of
"Color.datatype" disappears.

( I've already sent mail about this problem to www-html-editor@w3.org.

W3C HTML Validation Service uses XHTML 1.1 flat DTD for validating
XHTML 1.1 documents. This causes errors, for example:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html
     PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"
            "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd" [
<!ENTITY % xhtml-legacy.module "INCLUDE" >
<!ENTITY % xhtml-iframe.module "IGNORE" >
]>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
 <head>
  <title>Valid XHTML</title>
 </head>
 <body text="#282828" bgcolor="#f0f8ff">
  <p>Sample document.</p>
 </body>
</html>

This document is valid, but the validator says
'parameter entity "Color.datatype" not defined'.

Add the said PE declaration to DTD which is being used for validating,
please.
