I've commited a small change today, using (Latin X, Common Name)  
where applicable. Also moved "Baltic Rim" back to iso-8859-13.

Doing a few tests, I noticed that:

* 0.7.2 does not seem to support transcoding to iso-8859-3,  
iso-8859-4 and iso-ir-111. 0.7.1 neither, although the claim to  
support iso-ir-111 is something added to 0.7.2. Would it be because  
of the version of Text::Iconv on qa-dev and validator.w3.org? HEAD  
uses Encode and has a different list of supported charsets, though it  
does not seem to support iso-ir-111.
