Endre,

What the docs want to say is merely that it is not possible to URI-encode
non-ASCII character in an unambigous way. Server and client must always agree on
a common character encoding. Arguably this has been "defined" in later RFCs as
UTF-8. But this definition is useless in the general case. If I have no
information about the internal workings of an HTTP server, I have no way to find
out which encoding it expects.

Our docs are really not so clear and actually a bit wrong. Feel free to submit a
patch (against the xml File in xdocs).
