I've proposed the following updates to section 5.1
to note the issue with UTF-16:
Add, to the end of paragraph 2 ("XML performs ...")
External parsed entities encoded in UTF-16 are required to
begin with a Byte Order Mark ( section 4.3.3).
Add, at the end of the last paragraph ("This document requires...")
If the UTF-16 encoding is allowed, the XML requirement that
UTF-16 encoded charsets be noted with an initial byte order mark
(BOM) should be noted.
Please change (editorial) to:
If the UTF-16 encoding is allowed, XML requires that
UTF-16 encoded external entities start with a byte order mark
