This is true, if you are talking about entities used within
content. What about if you have a non-breaking space within
markup (say separating attributes values) or a zenkaku space within a
DTD? There are cases such characters, when they occur inline, can
cause problems.

That is why it's good to map them to SEPCHAR.
