Comment: 
"In addition, polyglot markup need not include the meta charset declaration,
because the parser would have to read UTF-16 in order to parse it by
definition."


The i18n WG guidelines recommend, nevertheless, that you always include a
visible encoding declaration in your document, since it helps developers,
testers, or translation production managers who want to visually check the
encoding of a document. So it's true to say that you strictly don't need it,
but we would prefer that people do. Please could you reflect that in your
document.
