Apparently they do either ISO-8859-1, or use the UA's locale (see 
discussion on http-auth).

I haven't tried RFC5987, but I'm pretty sure nobody supports it (will 
add test case soonish).

We may want to leave "realm" alone, and instead add something for 
display purposes ("prompt", "name"?).

I don't think this needs to be done in httpbis; we can do it later if 
there happens to be implementer interest.

Best regards, Julian
