Why isn't the defaultEncoding utf8?


I’m just curious if there is some specific reason why the defaultEncoding for a BrowserWindow is ISO-8859-1 instead of utf8?

Is there a reason? It would seem in 2016 the default should be utf8 but maybe there’s a good reason it’s not? If so I’d like to know what it is so I can be aware of whatever issues there are.

Thank you
