If the server is interpreting strings like "&123;" as character escapes when
using UTF-8, then that's a bug on the server. If the server is not using UTF-8
and expecting round-tripping of user-entered characters outside the declared
encoding, then that's a bug on the server.

Other than those two cases, I don't understand the problem being described
here. As far as I can tell, there is no ambiguity anywhere if you use UTF-8 and
follow the spec properly.
