Because that problem was solved a long ago in applications themselves.
Webob, Werkzeug, Paste, Pylons, Django, you name it, all are operating

Now currently what we have to do on Python 3 is to encode the data again
and decode it with the target charset. Unnecessary roundtrips that just
slow the whole thing down. What for?
