Nice. But I don't think that it does the same thing: my proposal provides
an alternate syntax for internal entities which also allows bundled 
other documents.  (Thinking about it more, it suggests that it might fill
some nice needs if the entity mechanism was rejigged to allow appendable
entities rather than having them in a prolog.)

I think you would need to have some top-level attribute available to
say "this branch does not form part of the infoset" so that it can
be referenced from an XInclude without appearing in the document
twice (assuming we will perform some kind of XInclude linking early).
