Point well taken. And, thank you for the explanation. It clarify the why and the when.

Dr. Fielding appears to have no ambition to introduce additional complexity into the processing of HTTP header definitions that would exist in a more I18N environment. As a result it is quite probable that ASCII, particularly 7-bit ASCII, will remain the character set of web code for years to come. At the same time it does not appear other bodies, such as IMC or the groups managed under ISOC, of the Internet's application layer particularly have any such interest either.
