Agreed, the future will be all unicode. For the time being: 8-bits
encodings will not go away, so that problem remains. And xetex will not
have an inputenc line - but presumably an engine line. Besides, unicode is
easy toe recognise.

I think Luatex will be pure unicode as well, but I'm not sure about that.
We'll know pretty soon: http://www.luatex.org/roadmap.html
