Well, especially the HTML5 doc _does_ list text/plain as a valid form encoding
(which is a change compared to HTML4). Calling it "not defined" looks like an
excuse though, since none of the other encodings are defined there either
While surprisingly there seems to be no official standard on name/value
encoding in text/plain, all browsers I've used back to stone-age Mosaic used
the same format.
So I'd expect the upcoming definition to match exactly that.
