title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I see no value in silently ignoring the charset="" parameter. We
don't ignore any other parameter, why ignore this one? We only support it at
all because some servers insist on sending it, according to implementation
feedback.
