This is a great start. A few comments

It seems weird to use Windows' names rather than the iso names as the
official encoding names. E.g., I expected iso-8859-1 to be the encoding
and windows-1252 to be one of the labels.

"Notes" still says multi-octet encodings aren't listed at all. Perhaps I
am misinterpreting what "list of encodings" refers to.

Including tables for all the multi-octet encodings is going to be a big
task and create a very long document.  Such tables may be better placed
in linked documents rather than the main body.
