Sorry to chime in this late, but I don't understand why we don't just fix  
the text/xml encoding problem by saying that it's equivalent to  
application/xml instead of keeping a requirement that all implementors  
will continue to ignore? (Implementors ignore it because there is a  
non-trivial legacy (mostly feeds) with charsetless text/xml content that  
uses non-us-ascii characters and specify the encoding with the XML  
declaration or expect the default to be UTF-8.)
