My personal experience:
- it's good to have embedded the support for the basic encodings
you need to support even if iconv is not found
- but pluging in iconv is not harder than properly debugging
So I agree with your conclusion but not for the same reasons.
Looking at the encoding.c support of libxml may prove helpful ... or not.
