Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I see no value in allowing an XML character encoding declaration in
text/html: it has no effect, so we'd have to limit it to UTF-8, and if we do
that, it would have no effect in XML, which defaults to UTF-8. What problem are
we trying to solve here?
