The data model that XSLT operates on doesn't include entity declarations or entity references. Therefore, your choice is between bending XSLT to meet the requirement, or not using XSLT at all. I think the cleanest solution to this kind of requirement is to express your transformation as a pipeline in which the steps that can't be done using XSLT are done using some other tool - for example Perl.
