FWIW, httpd 2.0.53 removed AddDefaultCharset from the default httpd.conf
configuration because of all the brokenness default charsets introduce.
So, I believe keeping that directive present is really a bad idea. See:

http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=23421

for more information as to why we removed this.

So, +1 to Eric's idea as it is the best one. (Historical versions of CHANGES
not showing up in UTF-8 aren't that big of a deal, IMHO.) -- justin
