I agree with Paul 100% on this one. For precisely this reason, DDML remained entity free for a very long time (though I got outvoted on unparsed entities in the end.) In my more recent project, XML Processing Description Language (XPDL), I've separated constraints, entities, and attribute defaulting, and will be adding notations to that list, from my list of parts. (See http://purl.oclc.org/NET/xpdl for details on XPDL.) Do we really need to specify content in the same place as constraints? I really hope not.
