Currently the specification states that Accept-Charset should be set as
appropriate by the user agent. However, Accept-Charset is a useless header that
is on its way out. Opera already dropped it from requests and Mozilla is
planning to.

Alternatively maybe the specification should not say anything about
Accept-Charset and Accept-Encoding except that authors do not have control over
them and that content-encodings used in transmission are automatically decoded
by the user agent.
