Right, but I think this erratum is wrong, so I'm asking to
reopen this issue.  A system id should be a string to the
XML processor, and that's what production 11 makes clear.
Escaping may be necessary before doing something URI-ish
with the string, but that should be done by the process
doing something URI-ish, not the XML processor.  Norm
explains how an entity resolution process is one example
of why the XML processor should not to the escaping.
