In the above specific case, I agree he is right.
But, if one visited a file with C-x RET c CODING RET C-x C-f
FILENAME RET, it usually means that the file encoding is
different from what Emacs automatically detects. Thus, in
such a case, we had better read the file with the same
coding system (i.e. CODING).
And, it's difficult to distinguish the above two cases.
