I'm not sure to understand everything, but the given link doesn't deal with the case where an entity should be translated to 2 Unicode characters, instead of only one as it is the case with the current hash table system.
Such 2 characters entities don't exist in the HTML 5 entity list, but some are present in the one used by MathML 3 (link in my previous message).
