Message-Id: <F8B53456-16BF-4309-9559-16F4C26CA79A@mnot.net>
To: httpbis mailing list <ietf-http-wg@w3.org>

We discussed this issue again in Prague, and there was general agreement in the room with the proposal that's reflected in this changset: <http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/changeset/1240>. In a nutshell, this gets HTTP out of the business of setting a default charset that's specific to the protocol.

In discussion, it was acknowledged that work remains outside of HTTPbis to fix up the charset situation, but that this is what *we* need to do.

Please raise any concerns you have; barring further discussion, we'll see these changes in the -14 round of drafts and close the issue afterwards.
