In discussion of test case mdocs09 at today's telcon (see
http://www.w3.org/Member/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=612) the WG decided that an
implementation of unparsed-text() should be allowed to apply
implementation-dependent heuristics to determine the encoding of the external
file between steps 3 and 4 (this might include reference to a BOM, or for
example auto-detection of a file as HTML with a META tag giving the encoding).

The spec will be changed accordingly.
