In the interest of moving forward:
1) A single coded character set ISO 10646 should be used.
2) The primary encodings (required by all implementations) should
be UTF-8 and UCS-2. The may be auto-detected.
3) Encodings other than these are allowed, in which case, an
external mechanism must be used to indicate the encoding.
