I'm now planning to write a small internet draft on only Accept-Charset *,
while also putting the rules in the transparent content negotiation draft.
I too think that the other issues are more controversial, though often only
slightly more.

By the way, the small internet draft won't have to make it to RFC status,
the proposesd changes can be merged with the HTTP/1.1 RFC when that RFC is
