A search by yahoo! of "O-charset-lang" brings up 4450 references to the link.

As it is being cited as a reference, rather than remove the content we should
improve the content of the page.
We should still recommend utf-8, but help people understand which encoding
conversions they may need to provide support for, to enable legacy data to be
moved to utf-8.
Also, point out some difficulties of conversion for certain of the encodings,
as Murata-san's document
"XML Japanese Profile" does for Japanese encodings
(http://www.w3.org/TR/japanese-xml/)
