I still prefer option 3, just move the Encoding attribute up where it should
have been, on <Attribute>, and leave the rest alone. I don't think it's more
(or less) of an impact than option 2 or 6, and an implementation that chose
to just ignore the attribute and base things on Name/NameFormat would still
work until some other encoding was defined.

But between 2 and 6, I think I'd prefer 2.
