You can put all your external entities in a different file so you 
dont have them in DocType specifier.

But what i like most is to use XInclude.
At least xsltproc supports XInclude if you call it with --xinclude 
option. But i guess other parsers do it as well.

Check this web site for more informations on modular doc book files 
with XInclude:

I use XInclude all the time and by now i see no disadvantage over 
external entities.

kind regards
