Can I shout the opposite: "the fact that a character was entered
directly or by reference should not be information available for any
other specification or general-purpose application: it should not be
part of the infoset."

This is because the use of character references should be determined by
its availability in the encoding used (and any user-supplied "kernel"
encoding within that).  XML should be defined using Unicode characters,
not the markup that achieved the character.
