            Bug ID: 21151
           Summary: Don't limit set of supported encodings
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WHATWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

          Assignee: annevk@annevk.nl

Section 4, Encodings, currently contains the statement: "User agents must not
support any other encodings or labels."

I don't think this restriction is acceptable. Some user agents have already
implemented support for other encodings (for example, the Google search engine
supports some Indian font encodings), and there's no good reason for them to
stop supporting them and make web pages using them unreadable.
