That's a possibility. If we can get IE and Safari to support RFC 5987, 
the problem that I wanted to solve in the first place  (missing interop 
for I18N) will be gone.

When we revise RFC 5987 for Draft Standard -- and I plan to do this as 
soon as possible -- when could then remove the requirement to support 
ISO-8859-1 as well.
