    Why was this decision made? I see from the XSLT 2.0 requirements
document, that one of the requirements was to give XSLT the ability to
figure out what the input encoding was. There is even a use case
mentioned in the requirements document :
http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt20req (see item 1.4) which talks about why
this would be useful.
