They might, if they want to make small changes.

In any case, as I show in my previous message, the problems are not
limited to Texinfo 5 (unlike what I previously thought).

I didn't propose to make any changes in the HTML targets, they can
continue using --enable-encoding.  I also didn't suggest to remove
@documentencoding; quite the contrary, the fix I suggested is to _add_
such a directive to those manuals that don't have it, but use UTF-8
encoded characters.
