How do I know that my document will be well-formed before I send it? 
Because I wrote my code to make it so, and when I write the XML 
declaration I assume that. I think the number of cases in which you 
don't know in advance whether or not  you will or will not be using 
Burmese/Cambodian/Amharic or, God help us, NEL, in the markup 
somewhere, are vanishingly small.
