I missed an "or" in there.  In +names,  has two possible encodings: the 
standard UTF-8 version (C3 BC if my mental UTF-8 bitshifter is right), 
and as the sequence ü.  Authors and software could choose to use 
either.

I agree.  This hasn't stopped people saying that they want entities but 
not DTDs.
