nope. If you consider a cluster community approach.

Windows-1252 will be more popular in the current statistics for the  
world, but not in some specific regions, like Japan or China for  
example. So basically choosing Windows-1252, you will be imposing a  
local preference on others. Take it another way, once the number of  
Chinese Web pages will be largely superior than the rest of the world  
(1), should we change the spec to Big5 or GB2312?

(1) 8.47 billions of pages, fast growth rate (89.4% in 2007)
