>I don't have a problem with allowing hacks to determine the character set

I have no problem with *allowing* them, but I have a very large
problem with *requiring* or *promotong* them, to the point of
basically excluding anything more reasonable. 

I think your compromise is reasonable, and I am willing to compromise.
I am not willing to give into the ERB deciding to *promote* a hack
when more suitable mechanisms exist, *and* are widely deployed.
