First of all I originally only tried to get answers to a few questions, and 
almost immediately people started bashing wildly.

That said, the problem here was very specific. No link in the chain should 
lose the essential piece of metadata referred to as "encoding info". If it 
is lost then there is no way to get it back. How is this not specific?

I have insisted no such thing. Also, in my experience the problem is way too

I most certainly do not, and I have never said anything of the kind. Either 
you must have grave comprehension problems or you are outright lying.

The problem occurs when one link in the chain behaves badly. Arch is one 
link in the chain. Exactly what is it that you don't understand?
