Yes, I know.

The Point I wanted to make was that the document encoding is independent
from the allowed charset (except having to be a subset).

That is what XML entities were defined for.

So even in an document using LATIN-1 as encoding, the charset still is
Unicode, giving us the possibility to use &entities; to use non-latin1
