            Bug ID: 26885
           Summary: Drop JIS X 212 from ISO-2022-JP
           Product: WHATWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

EUC-JP in the encoding spec does not support JIS X 212 even though the formal
definition of EUC-JP does include it. 

OTOH, ISO-2022-JP in the encoding spec does support JIS X 212 to my surprise. 

 Is there a reason to support JIS X 212 in ISO-2022-JP? It's not a part of the
original ISO-2022-JP (RFC 1468 : https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1468.txt). It's
added later in RFC 1554, but I don't think it's widely used. 

Blink has never supported ISO-2022-JP-2 with JIS X 212. It only supports the
original ISO-2022-JP.  Supporting JIS X 212 adds ~ 50kB to our build and I'd
rather avoid it.
