           Summary: R-066: Magic built-in datatypes: ENTITY and ENTITIES
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSD Part 1: Structures
        AssignedTo: ht@w3.org

The Datatypes spec states:

'The value space of ENTITY is the set of all strings that match the NCName 
production in [Namespaces in XML] and have been declared as an unparsed entity 
in a document type definition.'

The commentator asserts that ENTITY is not a primitive datatype and that a 
processor need not enforce 'have been declared as an unparsed .. '. A request 
is made to clarify this.

A similiar issue is raised for ENTITIES.
