These packages are meaningless in XeTeX+LaTeX and will probably give  
you errors at some stage. Input is assumed to be UTF-8, although this  
can be adjusted (see XeTeX-notes.pdf).
Output is unicode unless legacy fonts are used.

By the way, the ucs package has been deprecated in LaTeX by the utf8x  
option of inputenc:

Sufficient support for utf8 input is provided by the [utf8] option.
