Agreed. No harm done in making it explicit.

Just for the sake of the argument :-)

I just looked this up in some of my references and they
state that an xml-file without encoding attribute is utf-8 or
utf-16 (depending on the byte order mark).

Which to me means that xml-editors that assume something else are not
conforming to the xml-standards. Or am I missing something?
