Missing validity constraints on standalone docs?

Shouldn't it be a validity error for a standalone document
to have an attribute which refers to an externally defined
NOTATION?  Similarly, to externally defined ENTITY(IES)?

4.7 says the processor must provide notations to the app,
just as 4.6.6 summarizes (from where?) that it must provide
system/public IDs for entities (and their notations).  2.9
says the intent of standalone is to say that the external
markup doesn't affect the data provided to the app.  That'd
cover information used to make sense of attributes of type
NOTATION, ENTITY, and ENTITIES.

Or so it seems to me.
