I'm saying this:

Implementations which convert charset and support bind_textdomain_codeset():
        so we call bind_textdomain_codeset() and everything is OK.

Implementations which do not convert charsets and do not suppoer
        so we make all the .po files UTF-8 encoded.

Is there an implementation which convert between charsets and do not
support bind_textdomain_codeset()? Only if such an implementation exists
it should be required to strip the encoding specification from the .po
files, IMO.
