Dear XML Core Working Group,

  In order to minimize encoding errors for parse="text" processing,
please change the definition of the encoding attribute to include a
requirement that if the attribute has a legal value and the encoding is
supported and the protocol supports such action, that the server is
informed of the encoding attribute value, e.g. for encoding="iso-8859-2"
and a HTTP request, that the request includes

  Accept-Charset: iso-8859-2

such that the server has a chance to provide a proper representation.
