But it's the same with IE 6 and Opera.

I don't blindly guess the encoding.
I first try the content-type header, then the special _charset_ field,
and finally utf-8.
If there is a problem in the decoding, the client is broken (or there is
a bug in the application).
So the correct response is Bad Request, IMHO.
