Provided that the processor is serializing the result tree. If the output is not serialized, character maps have no effect. So in practice, the interop isn't that much better than d-o-e, since nearly all cases where d-o-e doesn't work are because the processor is not serializing.

Yes, but... assuming you are serializing, character maps are supported by all XSLT 2.0 processors, while disable-output-escaping might not, regardless whether you are serializing, and even if it is supported, the way the spec is written, it seems to allow differences to exist (because of the use of "should" in that section). The way I see it: avoid d-o-e and (if possible, always) use character maps in favor of it.
