(1) - it allows me to parameterize the declarations of internal general entities by using marked sections in external parameter entities (though typically for only one model for parameterization reasons and not different models for reuse reasons) (2) - it allows me to collect internal general entity declarations by topic (useful for reuse) (3) - it allows me to include a "package" of declarations under the purview of others (e.g. the OASIS Table Model) ... (also useful for re-use) I don't think I've put the element and attribute declarations for a given document model into more than one physical file when I'm responsible for the entire DTD, but if it were *really* big I would either do so or question why my model was so large. ...........
