Good point - but to the contrary, I think that charset from Content- 
Type should be always honored, adding special cases is an unnecessary  

Formally, a proxy can re-encode any text/* resource and expect the  
client to honor Content-Type charset over <meta> and built-in  
preconceptions, although I think that such proxies are extremely rare  
in this millennium.
