I believe you are misreading the XML 1.0 spec. It says that in the HTTP case,
RFC 3023 applies but for anyone specifying a new case, they recommend giving
XML itself precedence. However, since the RFC applies in the HTTP case, in the
HTTP case, the charset parameter on the HTTP level is authoritative.
