Well, I don't think it overloads the directive. Rather, the directive
controls the default charset which is added. None means no charset
is added :) We have similar directives which follow the form: none,
some, all. ServerSignature comes to mind as another example which
enables and sets. I agree the word "default" is clumsy. Maybe Western? Nah...
that doesn't seem right either.

The docs are VERY clear what AddDefaultCharset Default means, however.
