ISSUE-31: invalid bytes and default character encoding

http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/webapi/issues/31

Raised by:  Everyone
On product: XHR

During the Oslo F2F the following text was discussed:

   Otherwise, returns the body of the data received
   so far, interpreted using the character encoding
   specified in the response, or UTF-8 if no
   character encoding was specified. Invalid bytes
   must be converted to U+FFFD REPLACEMENT
   CHARACTER.

... several people suggested that instead of UTF-8 we should probably state
ISO-8859-1 (per RFC2616?) and that "invalid bytes" should be clarified.
