AFAIK, the main stumbling block for that is that XML doesn't allow
abbreviated close tags (ie, <foo>whatever</>).  Which is something that
we are not likely to give up.  So I'm not sure of the point of changing
something as trivial as entity declaration casing.  You're going to end
up having to fork the documentation anyway, or at least feed it through
an SGML to XML converter.  So why not fix the entity casing then?
