I'm sorry for the late response on this thread.

I'd like to avoid introducing a new mechanism to control a
coding system as far as possible.  And, the second
preference-order (used for saving) works only in this case:

(1) The buffer file coding system can't encode the current
    buffer, and
(2) The most preferred coding system can encode the current
    buffer, and
(3) A user doesn't want to use the most preferred one.

Isn't it a very rare case?
