4.2 Generating JSON
http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-csv2json-20150416/#generating-json

There is no mention of whether or not CSV data must be encoded in UTF-8.
The model for tabular data indicates that non UTF-8 CSV data should specify
the charset in the Content-Type header. The specification should clearly
indicate that a conversion to UTF-8 needs to be performed when the CSV data
is not in Unicode.
