Dave, here, we are discussing about the latest CVS code
(i.e. trunk HEAD), not about the comming 21.3 (trunk RC).

And, in HEAD, you have already installed the language
environment Windows-1251.  So, the question is that whether
or not Windows port of Emacs running under the codepage
cp1251 can automatically set the language environment to
Windows-1251.  And, I don't know how Windows port decides
the language environment.

I understand that the current method is not that good, but
don't have time to provide any concrete solution.

Yes.  But, you setup HEAD so that selecting Windows-1251
lang. env. automatically loads code-pages.  Thus, in this
lang. env., there should be no problem with using the coding
system windows-1251.
