I don't think it's necessary to have the precedence configurable - I
think it would make sense to have \xmltexentity always take

The usual case would be that there are no user-specified \xmltexentity
definitions present at all, and the document's DTD entities would be
used (by the feature you just added).

So if somebody does have their own \xmltexentity specified, it's
because they want that to be used instead. That would allow a user to
do something specific for ConTeXt processing, but I don't have a good
example for that. Personally I hope I can delete all my \xmltexentity
calls now.
