Sorry, I guess I might have had that confused with defining a global 
variable, which is a command-line option supported by both openjade and 
Xalan.  IMO, XML-processing tools should provide that feature (i.e. entity 
definition via the command-line).  You could always write a wrapper script 
that adds the entity definition to the internal subset of a copy of the 
document, before transforming it.  It's ugly, because you couldn't use a 
real XML parser to do that, since, by definition, the document will contain 
irresolvable entity references.  In usage, this ugliness would be entirely 
hidden, though.

Anyhow, treating it as an external entity does work, and you can put the 
generation of that in your makefile(s) or document build script(s).
