As I mentioned at the meeting, I still have some concerns:

- It seems that so far only browser implementors are involved in developing this spec, not the implementors of other HTML consumers such as search engines. The requirements and already implemented functionality may not be the same.

- I don't believe that the requirement "user agents must not support any other encodings or labels" is acceptable to all implementors who currently support a larger set of encodings.

- It would also be useful to check with the ICU team whether they are willing to update their converters to match the proposed specification.
