We also have a couple of handful of variables and function that just say
"charset" when it's in the context of network communications, like
`mail-parse-charset' and `message-posting-charset'.

I think the likelihood of any Emacs programmer that's interested in
networking libraries being confused by a parameter called :charset is
less than their being confused by a parameter called :mime-charset.

You come to this from a different angle, and is perhaps not all that
interested in networking protocols?  In that case, I understand your
hesitancy, but I...  think I'm right.  :-)
