It's pretty easy to delete a line in text editor, so I don't think editor's
templates are strong enough justification for the change.

As for XML tools, you can't use XML serializers to reliably create correct
polyglot documents.

Tools that insist on XML declaration are obviously unaware of polyglot
requirements and are not going to obey many other more important rules. And we
already know it's impossible to make HTML compatible with any output XML
serializer could generate.

In the end if you want to serialize polyglot documents, you MUST have polyglot
serializer, and polyglot serializers won't force an XML declaration.
