I'm still not convinced. These two documents are the same:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8+names"?>

Both are malformed. In order to make this well-formed we need a 
double ampersand:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8+names"?>

Or am I missing something?
