I18N-ISSUE-369: IANA transition [encoding]


Raised by: Addison Phillips
On product: encoding


Comment from Larry Masinter:

I take the ‘Encodings’ document as evidence that all is not well in the way the community interacts with IANA, if the IANA character set registry isn’t sufficient to define authoritatively how charsets should be used and to also inform implementors how they ARE used.

And a policy of “just use utf8” would argue that it might be OK to close the charset registry. Other registries like those for MIME types and URI schemes having similar problems but not being OK to close to additions.
