bytea isn't "treated" any different than other data types.  You just 
have to take care in the client that you escape every byte greater than 
127.  The same option is available to you in xml, if you escape all 
suspicious characters using entities.  Then, the encoding declaration 
is immaterial anyway.  (Unless you allow UTF-16 into the picture, but 
let's say we exclude that implicitly.)
