XHTML 1.1 .class inconsistency

From Building XHTML Modules, 5.1:

"parameter entities use the suffix .class when they are used to represent
elements of the same class"

From Modularization of XHTML, B.3.4.1:

<!ENTITY % InputType.class
              "( text | password | checkbox | radio | submit 
               | reset | file | hidden | image )"


<!ATTLIST input
               type         %InputType.class;        'text'

I sympathize with the idea that these input possibilities _should_ have
been elements, but they aren't.
