RE: [Encoding] false statement [I18N-ACTION-328][I18N-ISSUE-374]

It isn't to anyone's benefit that there are two conflicting sources of info about character encodings.

I think if the IANA Character Sets registry is obsolete, the right thing is to write an Internet Draft saying it's obsolete, and pointing people to this document instead.

If you get objections from folks in the IETF, then address those objections; for example, by including more historical information and discussion of use by non-web applications.

So no, I don't find the resolution satisfactory. I'm willing to help push through such a document in the IETF but would like some help.
