Something roughly like that, yes, but that's not enough.  What makes this 
issue slightly hairier than it first appears is that <meta charset> should be 
checked only for HTML5 documents, not any other HTML ones, so the doctype 
declaration needs to be parsed and taken into account as well.  As noted in 
bug 5992 I have some alpha level code for this (for the validator, not 
HTML::Encoding) which I'll try to revisit today or later this week.
