That's also a good point.  Maybe the default for XML files shouldn't be
utf-8 but `undefined' (i.e. the usual default which tries to
auto-detect the encoding).  It should still work well since utf-8 is
among the first encodings for which we try auto-detection and it has
a very good detector (very few non-utf-8 files are detected as utf-8).

Again, please report this via M-x report-emacs-bug.
