If you want my money, I think it was mainly these two -

Remove charset map files from repository, generate in first bootstrap
* admin/charsets/glibc/: New directory, imported from glibc 2.21.

and the changes surrounding or after these two which broke big5 usage - I think 
these two commit changes the precise meaning of "chinese-big5-1" and 
"chinese-big5-2" .

The division of -1 vs -2 is apparently because (older?) emacs's encoding is 
limited to about 9000 characters, and somewhat artificial.

 really do much more than (1) equal "big5" to
 "chinese-big5-1" and "chinese-big5-2" , (2) put ascii ahead
 of big5 in the priority. I suspect (1) is a recent emacs 25
 change; (2) really demonstrates how flaky/clever recent
 emacs is - it tries to say small or large english stuff
 within a chinese run is all chinese. sigh...
