Would this mean that if the client_encoding is for example latin1, and I
retrieve an xml document uploaded by a client with client_encoding utf-8

document with latin1 encoding but saying that it's utf-8 in it's xml tag?

That is likely to be a consequence of this proposed behaviour, but no doubt not a nice one.

Couldn't the server change the encoding declaration inside the xml to the correct
one (the same as client_encoding) before returning the result?
Otherwise, parsing the xml on the client with some xml library becomes difficult, because the library is likely to get confused by the wrong encoding tag - and you can't even fix that by using the correct client encoding, because you don't know what the encoding tag says until you have retrieved the document...
