Au contraire. UTF-8 is a character encoding scheme, which qualifies it as an
encoding. True, it is not a transfer encoding syntax, but the word "encoding"
does not necessary assert that it is. For more terminology details, please see
RFC 2130. And yes, it is also a charset; encodings and charsets are not
mutually exclusive. Actually what is happening is character set terms and email
terms are overlapping here.
