Fine and dandy for EBCDIC, but not so good for Latin-1 as used on mainframes,
where 0x85 = NEL.
Actually, not so good for EBCDIC either, because it means that each of the
dozens of EBCDIC code pages has to exist in two flavors, a native flavor
where 0x15 encodes U+0085, and an XML flavor where 0x15 encodes U+000A.
This is more or less what FTP software has to do, and it's ugly.
