"Note: Parameters on the application/x-www-form-urlencoded MIME type are
ignored. In particular, this MIME type does not support the charset parameter."

I do agree that there is no charset param on this media type. However, it seems
that UAs routinely ignore this and send a charset parameter anyway.

I would be good to find out whether this behavior can be eliminated from
implementations. If this is not the case, it might be good to explain why UAs
still send the charset parameter (and under which circumstances).
