Re:  RE: Encoding charset of HTTP Basic Authentication
Or simply average.  Welcome to the music business.

When a market such as the web inculcates wants what will work for the  
average joe, mediocrity, or average, is the almost certain outcome.   
Does this have to be the case?  Unfortunately, yes.  Almost every big  
change in the comp-sci market as long as I can remember came about  
because someone sat down to "simplify" or "dumb down" an existing  
pervasive or soon to be pervasive aspect of that market.  The choices  
made in that process may be brilliant, but the results are that  
mediocrities become "best practices".
