This is a Last Call comment on

The statement
"Historically encodings and their specifications (if any) were kept
track of by the IANA Character Sets registry. This specification renders
that registry obsolete."
and potentially other sweeping statements in this spec have to be
conditioned carefully so that they do not look like they affect other
protocols such as electronic mail, where e.g. the distinction between
true 7-bit US-ASCII and other encodings is crucial.
