While I would dearly love to have the character set issue resolved as
quickly as possible, I'd also vote for "let's get it out ASAP",
because what everyone is basically doing today, is recognising HTML
tags, and disregarding the character set in the declaration.

As such, 2.0 will be a step toward making the WWW a conforming SGML
application, but will leave some areas up to the implementors to get
right, which may or may not happen.

I think that is current practise...
