"Although HTTP allows an arbitrary token to be used as a charset value"

It would be useful to clarify that HTTP uses charset in two contexts:
within an Accept-Charset request header (in which the charset value
is an unquoted token) and as the value of a parameter in a Content-type
header (within a request or response), in which case the parameter
value of the charset parameter may be quoted.
