Comment: 
In the send() method, if \'data\' is a DOMString, it is always encoded as UTF-8 (good). But this seems at odds with the ability to specify different encodings in the headers, etc. Really the currently specified behavior is the behavior the I18N WG would recommend. Perhaps it should explicitly state that string data is always sent as UTF-8?
