Hi Sherman,

1. bug 7096080 is not visible at

2. bug 7096080 seems to be a duplicate of 6798514 - Charset UTF-8 accepts CESU-8 codings 
<> which was closed. It should be reopened 

3. Consider additionally 6795537 - UTF_8$Decoder returns wrong results 

4. Consider additionally 6184334 - Massive duplication of code in contains(Charset) methods in UTF-* 
Charsets <>

5. IMHO charset CESU-8 should be hosted in extended-charsets, otherwise it should be added to
