I don't have the time to test, but you probably will have to run the
perl script on the bbl-file. 

It is also possible to tell biber to recode unicode chars when
writing the bbl. The output format can be chosen freely (but it
takes some time to set up the reencoding vector):


Btw: The workflow sounds as if it would gain a lot if used together
with lualatex instead of xelatex: lualatex could convert the unicode
chars on-the-fly in a callback when reading the files.
