Yes, SAXON goes beyond this. SAXON escapes characters in the ASCII range
that are reserved in URIs. e.g., the space character becomes %20. This is
only fine if you don't already have a URI, which by definition is properly
escaped already.

The section you referenced only refers to non-ASCII characters (i.e.,
&#128; and higher) and I don't believe that automatically escaping these
upon output is in any way problematic.
