I think that's an excellent suggestion, and I can't see much wrong with the
<?ctrl 1f?> idea.

(Purists will object that there's no guarantee that the name "ctrl" is
unique. We could say that the PI name should be the prefix of an in-scope
namespace with some unique namespace URI. But purists will probably object
to that too).

Note that James Clark in his xt product came up with a way of representing
control characters in the result tree of a transformation, so that they
could be generated in the serialized result file when using method="text".
If there's enough consensus, we could perhaps give the idea a home by making
it a standard feature of method="text" in XSLT.
