    I don't know how common, but for example: broken code (Gnus at times,
    I'd bet) or customizations (select Latin-1 for your BBDB database) and
    C-x RET c.  Basically whenever the coding system is actually specified
    rather than selected from the set of somehow-preferred coding systems.

If you specify a coding system with C-x RET c, and it doesn't
handle all the text, should Emacs warn about that?
