[SG16] UK national body concerns about P1885R1 'Naming Text Encodings to Demystify Them'

Hi Corentin and SG16,

We discussed P1885R1 briefly in the British Standards Institute meeting yesterday.

We support the general direction of the paper and agree that it seeks to solve a real problem. We support further work.

We have significant concerns about the proposal to rely on the IANA registry and RFC2978/RFC3808 process, including a normative reference to the Character Sets database. The Character Sets database is not an International Standard and is maintained by a process that appears to provide neither the quality assurance nor the checks and balances built into the ISO process.

Best regards,
