The problem that I foresee is actually EDITING the danged thing.

Anytime to get into utf-8 or shift-jis, we are going to have conflicting
rules about what is an invalid character expansion.  Not a problem
for parsing or serving the file, but it will be a problem if you bring it
up in a shift-jis or utf-8 editor.

Perhaps the easest thing is to add the HTTP_ERROR_DOC.html.utf8
or HTTP_ERROR_DOC.html.iso2022-jp or whatever, and reference it
by the uri: option from the .var file.  Simply restrict the .var file to 8 bit
sbcs encodings that won't be clobbered by editing the .var map file in
any 8 bit sbcs editor (e.g. all the iso8859's can stay in the var file.)

Would this make sense to everyone?
