Currently it is, but there are sticky issues: in particular, a default encoding
overrides information in HTML meta elements as well as browser heuristics,
at least for modern browsers.
Consequently, random pages that happen to be in non-Unicode charsets are
getting mis-served and mis-displayed. The site will probably revert to
having no default as a result, which is a great pity.
Talk to Sarasvati if you have a better idea.

And legacy HTML, it seems.
