We all agree on
(a) How this should work
(b) That any HTML encoding belongs to the HTML layer, not to the
    MIME layer

The question is whether this agreed opinion is made most clear by
(1) Stating it explicitly in the text, as I prefer, or
(2) Omtting or mention of the HTML layer and its encoding.

I prefer (1), since omission is not a good way of clarifying
things to people who read a document. Omisssions can be
easily misunderstood.
