Anecdotally this has always been the case, but come to think of it I
have no idea if it is required behavior or not.
I can imagine that there might be some mobile browser out there that
returns forms in iso-8859-1 even if the page was rendered utf-8.
Nevertheless, the mainstream browsers can be relied on to submit forms
using the character set with which the page is rendered.
