Dave --

I'm a tad confused:  Are you really advocating that RFC-XXXX should not
define ANY character set names?  Not even US-ASCII?

I think this will be a real show-stopper for a lot of people, notably
the Europeans and Japanese, who already regularly send around non-ASCII
mail and are really seeking nothing more than a clearly-defined way to
label that mail.  I don't see how we can deny them that!  -- Nathaniel
