As was corrected in an earlier message, it is iso-2022, not utf-7.

No, I am not. But my discussion from the outset has been centered on utf-8
related problems. As you point out (and as I noted earlier in this thread)
most people are able to get CJK working with localized DCBS encodings
without too much trouble. 

I, and the people that I am collaborating with in XML-based data projects,
are all at the bleeding edge using utf-8, and thus I have had to deal with
this problem extensively in trying to get everyone's systems set up
