The following section also seems relevant to this bug:

"4.4.3 Included If Validating (http://www.w3.org/TR/xml/#include-if-valid)

"When an XML processor recognizes a reference to a parsed entity, in order to
validate the document, the processor must include its replacement text. If the
entity is external, and the processor is not attempting to validate the XML
document, the processor may, but need not, include the entity's replacement
text. If a non-validating processor does not include the replacement text, it
must inform the application that it recognized, but did not read, the entity.

"This rule is based on the recognition that the automatic inclusion provided by
the SGML and XML entity mechanism, primarily designed to support modularity in
authoring, is not necessarily appropriate for other applications, in particular
document browsing. Browsers, for example, when encountering an external parsed
entity reference, might choose to provide a visual indication of the entity's
presence and retrieve it for display only on demand."
