osis2mod does not use an xml parser. It assumes that the input is  
proper. It does check for a few problems that would make a module

The problem is that an XML schema does not provide a mechanism for  
the definition of external entities, which these are.
And OSIS is defined by an XML schema. So no, there is no way to add  
them to OSIS.

However, I can see about changing osis2mod to map these to their  
valid substitutes, if they are not there already.
