Yes, as I said, you might well argue that the requirement does not apply
to formats based on Unicode; on the other hand Martin argues that the
requirement should not be too difficult to implement because the Infoset
includes information about the original encoding of the document, and he
wouldn't really cite that if the requirement does not apply to XML.
