Excuse my ignorance (honest), but where is xml:encoding defined? I didn't
find it in the XML 1.1 spec. That prefix is reserved, so we have to be
careful with what we use. An alternative would be "encoding", but if
"xml:encoding" is well-defined in some spec it might be OK and even a good
thing to use that.

My only concern is human readability and ease of debugging. I think base64
is fine where the data can't be represented in XML as "plain text".
