Since ASCII is a subset of UTF-8, an XML file created using ASCII + entities should be correctly read if the reader assumed it was UTF-8. That is, there should be no harm in
writing some (most?) UTF-8 characters as entities. (or am I missing something here?)

What does XSLT 2.0 say about needing the xml declaration for such encodings?

Is US-ASCII such an encoding?

With Saxon, it's the omit-xml-declaration that gives, and that's what's specified in XSLT 2.0.
