But if you change the default behaviour of the builtin codecs
only, how would this help a user of a broken application ?
The Unicode implementation would continue to use "strict"
for things like low-level parser marker conversions and external
codecs would also not work as expected (e.g. the Asian codecs).
In the end, I don't think we'd gain anything much except another
global to carry around.
