The Encoding declaration state (http-equiv="content-type") section of HTML5 says this [1]:

The Encoding declaration state may be used in HTML documents, but elements with an http-equiv attribute in that state must not be used in XML documents.

Is it correct that it must not be used in XML, and should that ban on the Encoding declaration state therefore be added to the Character Encoding section in the polyglot spec? [2]
