 Hi all, 8-)
 the XMLP WG has decided to close the issue 59 [1] with the 
following resolution:

 The transport binding framework will additionally say, that it
is the responsibility of transport bindings to specify how the
infoset is being transfered to and reconstituted by the binding
at the receiving node. Such a binding, if using XML 1.0
serialization of the infoset, may mandate that a particular
character encoding or set of encodings be used.

 The normative HTTP binding will state that it mandates that the
receiver at least supports the UTF-8 and UTF-16 encodings. The
indication and negotiation of used character encodings will be
done using standard HTTP and XML mechanisms.

 Best regards
 

                   Jacek Kopecky
