Letting the stylesheet do the chunking seems to be the way to go,
otherwise internal and external references can be a pain with time.

Well, I would say, instead of using entites that are defined only in
the DTD, we can write unicode numbers (ie. &#NUMBER; format) and keep
the output 7-bit.  Provides multi-lingual documents, and drops the
necessity of carrying the DTD file around for proper expansion.

Though if we go this way, we'll have to use elements for entities such
as &TeX; and &LaTeX; (ie. <TeX/> and <LateX/>.)
