> http://www.w3.org/TR/web-forms-2/#x-www-form-urlencoded
>
>> Authors must not specify an encoding other than UTF-8 or US-ASCII in
>> the accept-charset attribute when the method used is get and the
>> action indicates an HTTP resource.
>
> That conformance requirement is not checkable from the bytes of the
> document plus the content-type header when the action is relative as
> it would depend on the base URI in that case. Hence, the conformance
> status could change depending on whether the author puts the document
> on a server or uploads it to a validator.
>
> This point should probably be given consideration with other external
> conformance dependency issues related to images and such.
