On Python 3 you should not only open file in text mode with specified encoding, but also specify the "xmlcharrefreplace" error handler.

    doc.writexml(open(filename, "w", encoding="utf-8", errors="xmlcharrefreplace"), "", "  ", "utf-8")

I can suggest only one solution -- explicitly document this behavior.

Perhaps we also should add a special module level function for writing DOM tree to binary file. Low-level writexml() should not be used directly.
