Comment from Martin Duerst:

This is a Last Call comment on 

The statement
"Historically encodings and their specifications (if any) were kept 
track of by the IANA Character Sets registry. This specification renders 
that registry obsolete."
and potentially other sweeping statements in this spec have to be 
conditioned carefully so that they do not look like they affect other 
protocols such as electronic mail, where e.g. the distinction between 
true 7-bit US-ASCII and other encodings is crucial.
