As OtherBill said in his post, this is a default, and unfortunately the
default is the only thing implemented right now :)

A module would really want to know reasonable character sets to
translate into as well as the charsets that the browser is willing to
accept.  The charset choice really deserves some work before too long.  

For now, the question regarding functionality has been "What is the
least that I have to put into mod_charset_lite so that I can get the
supporting Apache core code tested properly?"  Hopefully I'll finish
testing some MBCS fixes Real Soon Now so that I can move into module
space and be able to leave the APACHE_XLATE stuff in Apache core alone
for a while.
