E24 is based on Michael's proposed text [0].  However, he further

I pointed out this issue and (probably mistakenly) suggested "(including a document entity)" [1].  

I now think that we should drop the third bullet and add "for every external parsed entity 
and the literal entity value of every internal parsed entity " after "but after 
the end-of-line normalization described in section 2.11 has been performed".
