--- Comment #6 from Anne <annevk@annevk.nl> ---
The applicability is not that limited... This document describes the encoding
subsystem of the web platform.

ASCII itself is probably best defined as the U+0000 to U+007F code point range
or 0x00 to 0x7F byte range, rather than saying just ASCII. Newer web platform
specifications do that.

Anyway, this is what browsers do for the "us-ascii" label. They decode it per
the windows-1252 encoding. So this is WONTFIX.
