Uhm, which commit are you actually refering to, Diane? Is it the one
that handles external entity resolution? I read this as "expand
properties in external entities as well", right?

Actually I think entity resolution is the parsers job and IMHO both
parsers (JAXP reference and Xerces-J) have a bug here, that we are
working around. I'd rather drop that code than expanding on it.
