To avoid stepping on the toes of Charmod more than is necessary, I  
suggest making it non-conforming for a document to have bytes in the  
0x80?0x9F range when the character encoding is declared to be one of  
the ISO-8859 family encodings.

(UA conformance requires in some cases these bytes to be decoded in a  
Charmod-violating way, but reality trumps Charmod for UA conformance.  
While I'm at it: Surely there are other ISO-8859 family encodings  
besides ISO-8859-1 that require decoding using the corresponding  
windows-* family decoder?)
