Understood. The alternative (which I think should be seriously considered) is to break those pages, and to always use UTF-8 for encoding.

I can only spec that if browsers are willing to do it. So far, my understanding is that they are not. (There's no point writing a spec that isn't followed, the whole point of the spec is to define what should happen to get interoperability.)

Understood again, but maybe it makes sense to ask the question again, now that all browser vendors are actually part of the same specification effort.

To my knowledge, using the page encoding for the query part of the URL is still required for interoperability with a number of servers. We would not be willing to break those servers.
