Description:
When using XML output for mysqldump, database options like default character set are not included. 

How to repeat:
mysqldump -uroot -pmysql -P3351 -X --no-data --hex-blob --create-options  -R --databases sakila > sakila-xml.txt

open output file. check <database> tag. nothing there indicating what character set / collation.

Suggested fix:
include database creation options.
