I don't know exactly what and where, and I doubt it will get changed
as it's already well-known, I think.  However:  Extended segments get
used for standard charsets like Latin-9, contrary to the CTEXT spec:

  Extended segments are not to be used for any character set encoding that can
  be constructed from a GL/GR pair of approved standard encodings. For
  example, it is incorrect to use an extended segment for any of the ISO 8859
  family of encodings.
[The CTEXT spec implies that Emacs is wrong _not_ to use extended
segments for private charsets, but the text of the spec is rather
ambiguous.  I couldn't locate its author to check its intent.]
