The few cases where this is important (numeric references to lt, amp, gt,
quot, apos, control characters in XML 1.1) could be special-cased.
But I don't think that handling numeric character references at the
encoding level is worth doing.

[P]olice in many lands are now complaining that local arrestees are insisting
on having their Miranda rights read to them, just like perps in American TV
cop shows. When it's explained to them that there are in a different country,
where those rights do not exist, they become outraged. --Neal Stephenson
