My humble two cents: although I could use XeLaTeX with babel, babel was not conceived having pure UTF-8 input in mind, so when I started working with XeLaTeX I moved to polyglossia package. I'm not sure if, from a XeTeX + eplain perspective there is any difference between polyglossia and babel, and even if you would be able to use any polyglossia features (polyglossia relies on XeLaTeX's fontspec package) inside eplain, but perhaps this is something worth checking. Well, or maybe in a near future...
