OTH, when I have submitted a while ago [1] the same concerns about the 
impact of external parsed entities on c14n, the answer has been that C14 
was about logical documents rather than physical files.

Except for the historical reason that an inclusion mechanism has been 
specified in the original XML 1.0 recommendation and the other has been 
specified afterwards (and that the whole XML processing model is blur), 
I don't see any reason to say that one should be performed before c14n 
while the other should be performed after :) ...
