There's actually many differences between the Syntax and 2.1 handlings of encodings! Generally, Syntax no longer goes out of its way to support non-ASCII-compatible encodings; more specifically, it favors using UTF-8, the modern web's encoding.

As such, I don't consider these divergences to be errors per se; many corner cases changed between 2.1 and Syntax. In particular, I was actively trying to align with HTML here, so we have less independent decoding algorithms on the web. 

Do you have evidence that the specified behavior is breaking pages?
