Yes I like using xml:base as much as possible.
(And I think xml:base does allow non-ASCII chars since it tells 
applications how to % encode them)

But from the point of view of a software developer, I can't rely on the 
content authors having added xml:base, and given increasing suggestions 
that redirects are a good thing, then this problem is increasingly 
likely to happen in practice.
