Yes, I misread it.

This seems to mean that a non-validating parser that reads the
external subset even when standalone="yes" must perform a check
when expanding entities to see where they were declared.

What is the status of a document like this:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<!DOCTYPE foo [
<!ENTITY % pe "<!ENTITY e 'hello'>">

&e; refers to a declaration that occurs in a parameter entity, so it
is not well-formed.  Or did they mean "external parameter entity"?

There seems to be a typo in the Rationale for this erratum.  The
second sentence contrasts a processor that doesn't read the external
subset with one that (also) doesn't.
