Why not setting a charset parameter should cause a problem of some sort
in any browser? I do not understand this. Section 3.4 of the spec
does not make any mention of mandatorily adding/serving a css file with
a charset parameter?

Why should RC2 or RC3 or RC4 fail or create a problem of some sort in
any browser if "AddDefaultCharset utf-8" is not declared.

I sincerely and honestly do not understand this.

IE 8 (and lower), Opera 10.x and Opera 11.0 (build 1156) are the only
browsers I know which fail
