Thanks, apparently this is also something for the URI list, and
the syntax is not yet STD 68 ABNF.  Ignoring syntax nits, what
is the point of reviving codepage 437 and mixing it with UTF-8 ?

Folks outside of Fidonet / UK / US often use(d) codepage 850 or
rather 858 instead of 437.  The same audience also uses 1252.

I consider 437 as obsolete unless I desperately need as much box
drawing characters as can be squeezed into a single "codepage" -
but that is not the case for doing something with ZIP files ?!?

Are the length considerations as they should be ?  An unlimited
number of slash separated folders ending with a filename and
optionally starting with a language tag, each segment up to 254
characters, is that how the ZIP format works ?
