It's good enough for XML, where documents without specified encodings
are mandated to be UTF-8; For HTML, it gets tougher, as the mechanisms
for spelling the encodings are harder. Python scripts are much harder,
as Python's parser wants an explicit comment for non-ASCII-encoded source.
One place that the breakdown shows up is in the 'SnapshotExportContext',
where unicode can sneak into content (via import, for instance), which
breaks the OFS.File handling in 2.8 (that code is the only client of
'getEncoding' at the moment).
