Er, no.  Actually strongly +1.

And I like the suggestion to move to entities.  Can we have both?

If I'm understanding this correctly, the logic to expand entity references
would be in XmlMapper, not in every task, right?

Also, how would tasks like Available work?  It seems to me that this too
should be moved outside the scope of the document.  Perhaps it should be a
processing instruction (XML PI)?
