Yes, I too would be unhappy if the SVG media type had 'charset' as a
required parameter.  (I merely sought views on whether it could be an
optional parameter.)

Please appreciate why I raised the subject -- SVG is becoming
increasingly popular, SVG 1.0 has been a W3C Recommendation for quite
some time, and there's been very little information on whether anyone is
registering a media type for it.

Thanks again,

Dave
