No harm done. The reason why I just posted the spec URL is that it's actually the entire spec that backs the argument. XML is (essentially) specified as a mapping from a sequence of bytes to a hierarchical structure (and back again). That's why there is an XML declaration header that names the encoding, for example. It wouldn't be needed if XML was defined as Unicode data.
