I think the specs for form-based file upload (RFFC1867) defined an alterate
encoding for web forms multipart/formdata that allows specifying the
charset . This is referenced in the draft on HTML internationalization as
one of two ways to transmit form data in arbitrary character encodings.

But I don't know what client or server software is actually capable of
using these protocols.
