Yes, I agree, because the é you have used in your example is
not a Unicode é but rather an ISO 8859-1 é.  But my é was not
not an ISO 8859-1 é but rather a Unicode é (all examples so
far are still using your ISO 8859-1 encoding, so as not to
make the discussion unreadable).  So given that I am inputting
a real Unicode é, why would that cause XeTeX to interpret it
as a Ctrl-Z ?
