IMHO it should only accept strings, because in the value should be a xml
string and therefore always has to be encoded in 'utf-8' or in the
encoding specified in the processing instruction.

I disagree with that. Since Zope 3 is supposed to use unicode internally
(at least that's the legend) it should support unicode also at the parser level. Other languages like Java store XML also as unicode strings and support parsing it.
