Not really.  It says:

    The charset parameter is only used when processing a Script goal
    source; Module goal sources MUST always be processed as UTF-8.

i.e., if it ends with .mjs it's UTF-8

If there were some politically viable way to say it, I'd say to throw the 
entire draft away other than the IANA registrations and replace it with 
something written by someone who understands MIME and isn't totally 
embedded in the html/javascript/UCS world.
