Okay, missed that. What about the encoding, though? UTF-8 is the
default encoding; what value is there in specifying it explicitly? I
can only imagine it getting in the way, e.g. if the transport decided
it wanted to re-encode the document in UTF-16 and transmit it that
way.

(I don't think this is an important issue for Subversion, but since
you are doubtless involved in a lot of other XML-using projects, and I
probably will be in the future, I'd like to hammer out these little
ambiguities.)
