And once again, you're making a much stronger claim than I am.  Simply because 
_I_ don't like parameter entities _doesn't_ mean they're being abolished.  
Making them as capable in this model as they are in the current DTDs will take 
some doing, but a basic model is already presented in the proposal.  
Suggestions for expanding that model - from anyone - are welcome.
