OK, i sent an email to ltru on UTF-8 and XML, w/o subscribing, just to
get a feel for it myself.

I personally think doing so would be counter-productive, because deep
down we probably all know that the destination is UTF-8, so it will have
to be undone. It's just a matter of when.

It would be my preference to do UTF-8 w/o transliterations, but if
that's not feasible, then i wouldn't mind transliterations shown above,
if you absolutely want to have transliterations.
It's a bit strange though that this would be the only record w/
transliterations in the whole registry. And if 5 years from now we go to
UTF-8, there would probably need to be an update to that record that
removes transliterations.

Yes, i'd like to complete baku1926.

I don't promise not talking about other variants, however: including the
2nd one from last fall.
