Could you provide references to the above? I had trouble finding official
default values for the URL character encoding used by browsers.

There's also the trouble of users being able to override the default and revert
back to (most likely) ISO-8859-1 encoding.

Right now, I'm -1 for making URIEncoding="UTF-8" by default since it might
break a lot of servers, but I'm willing to be convinced. For the record, I
always set URIEncoding="UTF-8" on my projects but we don't want an
out-of-the-box server configuration to surprise anyone.
