This issue tracks the bug listed above and was created as part of the WG CR process.



Per Jungshik Chromium and WebKit follow ICU, which follows

whereas Gecko has its own implementation which is quite a bit different. I
forgot what Opera did, but it no longer seems relevant. Internet Explorer is
quite special as well, allowing nested shift_jis.

Given this, I'm inclined to align the decoder with the aforementioned RFC,
though keeping error and EOF handling of course. Note that by fixing bug 26885
we already took one step in this direction.
