Bruno Haible once argued that we should stick to IANA encoding names
rather than follow Emacs’ lead in defining new names:

Emacs encoding names in ‘coding:’ cookies, since these are an Emacs
thing anyway.

So, ‘file-encoding’ could be taught more encoding names than
‘set-port-encoding!’ (and it could be written in Scheme, too.)
