You can buy the specification for 114 Swiss francs ;-)

I have the same understanding.

Is it reasonable to use the iconv library in Emacs (to not reimplement
its encodings)?

There are still some standards (e.g. in the telecom industry)
that are based on the old encodings.  I understood so that UCS-2 is
an obsolete encoding and will be replaced gradually by UTF-16.
