Not really: it has the same effect as including at the very beginning
of the DTD the following declaration:
<!ENTITY % html "INCLUDE">
Elsewhere in the style sheet there will be something like
<!ENTITY % html "IGNORE">
declarations specific for HTML output
and the declarations will be read when %html; is set to INCLUDE, either
in the DTD or in the command line options.

This is correct.

The two things are different and totally independent mechanisms, which
can be used together.  Personally, I prefer not to use it for
e.g. HTML, because of the potential confusion, but the -i mechanism is
certainly useful to encode orthogonal functionality (e.g. how URLs are
rendered, localisation, documents with large fonts, documents for a
specific audience, etc.)
