Per http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2005May/0022.html the  
main importance is documents encoded in Windows-1258 written in  
Vietnamese, but it does not elaborate on why that is so. (Or why making  
IRIs work for that encoding was important but making them work for HTML,  
CSS, etc. was not.)
