In theory the data sent by the client should be in one of the
'acceptable' character sets. In practice I am sure there are plenty of
clients which either don't obey this directive or ignore it altogether.
I'm not sure if it might be useful as a way of hinting to modern clients
that you would like input in utf-8 (or another character set), though I
believe that most browsers will attempt to provide form data in the same
character set as the containing page anyway.
