I don't think they're valid in XHTML either, even if they are in XML: This
is from xhtml1.dcl:

<!SGML -- SGML Declaration for valid XML documents --
     "ISO 8879:1986 (WWW)"

     CHARSET
         BASESET
             "ISO Registration Number 176//CHARSET
             ISO/IEC 10646-1:1993 UCS-4 with implementation
             level 3//ESC 2/5 2/15 4/6"
