Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: This case is made illegal because "here be dragons": specifying
<meta charset=utf-16> actually has either no effect, or is actually explicitly
interpreted as UTF-8. In no case does it have the effect it appears to have,
namely to declare the encoding as being UTF-16. Therefore we would not be doing
anyone in favours by allowing it.
