It is required if you want Latin-1 output. If you want, say, Latin-2
output, you lose with both releases. If you want UTF-8 output, it
works in both cases.

I could offer a solution restoring the functionality of 0.5.x (if not
the API); provided somebody speaks up and says "yes, I need it, and I
still use 0.5.x because 0.6 does not support Latin-1 output" when used
with 4DOM.
