Yes there is, it's the explicit or implicit charset definition of the
xml format.  If mod_dav, or others, are generating EBCDIC xml without
the proper charset tags (if such a thing were even possible to decode)
then I'd think this is a much deeper problem in the modules creating
the xml, not the httpd core.  I understand all xml is iso-8859-1 until
informed otherwise.

How can the xml parser or xml apps do anything with alternate explicit
charsets, if the core/filters switch the input or output stream to EBCDIC?
