Having read the XML specification and errara carefully, I withdraw my 
claim.  An external PARAMETER entity does *not* always parse as an external 
DTD subset.


For example, the following XML document is valid.

foo.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE foo SYSTEM "foo.dtd">
<foo/>

foo.dtd

<!ENTITY % foope SYSTEM "foope.mod">
<!ELEMENT foo %foope;>

foope.mod

EMPTY
