The limitations is already documented:

"""However, it’s the caller’s responsibility to ensure that the string is free of characters that aren’t allowed in XML, such as the control characters with ASCII values between 0 and 31 (except, of course, tab, newline and carriage return); failing to do this will result in an XML-RPC request that isn’t well-formed XML. If you have to pass arbitrary bytes via XML-RPC, use the bytes class or the class:Binary wrapper class described below."""

Here is a patch which forbids creating ill-formed XML.
