Sorry for my poor explanation...  Please specify if my English
paragraph is difficult to understand and I mis-understand yours.

Problem on old behavior is not affected at dir==NULL case.  For
example, when core_dir_config for dir==NULL, it is:

o for dir==NULL
   { add_default_charset = UNSET, add_default_charset_name = "ISO-8859-1" }

And if you specify AddDefaultCharset,

o for dir==NULL
   { add_default_charset = On, add_default_charset_name = "ISO-2022-JP" }

Before processing merge_core_dir_configs(), template for new
core_dir_config is copied from dir==NULL's.

In case which <Directory /> does not have AddDefaultCharset directive,
new core_dir_config is:

o for dir=="/"
   { add_default_charset = UNSET, add_default_charset_name = "ISO-8859-1" }

And with old behavior (always megrge charset_name from new to
template), template is overwritten like this:

o for dir=="/"
   { add_default_charset = On, add_default_charset_name = "ISO-8859-1" }

And with new behavior (merge only if new charset is not UNSET),
template is like this:

o for dir=="/"
   { add_default_charset = On, add_default_charset_name = "ISO-2022-JP" }

I'm sorry, if this is an answer which you want.

Hmmm, is it more consistent to apply this?
