It seems that the word "get rid of" is confusing.

Emacs-unicode still keeps all latin-iso8859-X charsets.  We
can't get rid of them.  Those charsets carry such
information as how to map their code point to Unicode, what
designation sequence to use to be encoded in iso-2022 base
coding systems.

But we can "get rid of" a special character code area for
each of them.
