Further to our discussion in yesterday's telcon, fyi...

"Since there are so many character entity names, and the files
specifying them are resources that may be subject to frequent lookup, a
template catalog file has also been provided. Users are strongly
encouraged to design their implementations so that relevant entity name
tables are cached locally, since it is not expected that the listings
provided with this specification will need changing for some long time."

Meanwhile, I wonder if this spec gives URIs to these entities...
perhaps not worthwhile.
