Sebastian seems to imply that this is just a whim of the LaTeX3 team
to support only 2 encodings.  In fact, TeX unfotunately makes it practically
impossible to support any more than one encoding so this is not an
"official line" but a necessity.  This one need not ne T1 but it has
to be some arbitrary one and T1, despite its deficiencies,  was agreed
as a TeX standard long before LaTeX had any support for encodings.
