Dear HTML Working Group,

17.1 Requires that a user agent sends an accept-charset request header 
defined by the author, rather than actually the charset it accepts.

"The user agent must use this list as the field value of the accept-charset 
request header when requesting the resource using HTTP"

This has no merit whatsoever, there is no point a user agent saying it 
accepts charsets it doesn't actually understand, and actively interferes 
with content negotiation as defined in RFC 2616.

Please remove this constraint.


Jim Ley.
