there is a way via entity handlers I believe but it wouldn't be true XML
anymore. Not sure if that would be acceptable.

It would be possible to add it to core but I am not sure I would like it.
ie Would be fragments, raw text, documents etc. We are looking at such
things for ANt2 but that is a while off.
