I may already have asked this, but:

E72 seems to imply that declarations of internal parsed entities whose
body does not match "content" are legal, even though any attempt to
reference those entities is not.

Are the Infoset, and DOM, required to represent these unusable
declarations? And if so, in what form?


In specific, it has been pointed out that the DOM can't represent
	<!ENTITY foo "<foo>">
except by making it equivalent to
	<!ENTITY foo "&60;foo&62;">
