Both of these functions are wrong:  <?xml may not be preceded by anything, not
even whitespace.  Strings, like the encoding, may be "string" or 'string'. And
the html tags must be matched case insensitively, no matter what the user's
settings are, while xml should not. 

Besides that, it's an interesting approach, definitely a worthwhile
optimization!  I'm not sure about PostScript, I think that also implies a
specific encoding.  As for '# xmcd' files, at least the CDDB treats them as
Latin-1, which is a shame, since there are CDs in many other languages. 
Locally however, utf-8 also works.  Btw., VRML, which I mentioned for my
alist, also gives the encoding in its magic:

#VRML V1.0 ascii
#VRML V2.0 utf8
