I know. But XML files are SGML files (the contrary is not true) and SGML 
tools can use both entity sets. I'm not sure however that it would mean that 
we can get rid of the SGML-only version of the ISO entities, they way they 
are declared could have some impact, for example on stylesheets.

I've simply been putting everything together because of this 
interoperability, and to avoid multiplying the number of packages. Don't you 
think we've got already enough of them? ;-)

I agree that a separate xml-common package could be a valid technical 
solution, I just don't really see a good reason why we should go this way. 

Everything this package contains are very basic and small ressources, 
although a bit heterogeneous. I think that both versions of the ISO entities 
go well together in this package.
