The  encoding sniffing algorithm of HTML5 is, btw, not created for fun. What kind of benefit are you looking for? How do you want it demonstrated?

Some benefits:

1) Better interoperability with XML, whose default is UTF-8.
2) Better interoperability with the oither, dominating Web browsers, which do sniff.
3) Better results for the user, as it is difficult to guess UTF-8 unless it is UTF-8.
4) UTF-8 is the trend and the goal 

What more do you need to see demonstrated? What makes you in doubt about the benefits?
