[theora] Charset used for text subtitles?

I have a question about the proposed text subtitles for videostreams.
I suppose this is more about the ogg container format than about theora,
but since it's theora that has come to push such a feature I put my question in this forum.

The question is whether all contents will use unicode charset by default, or if charset will be disregarded?
Because as an example, in the xine video player, one has to state what encoding is used for the subs. If it was taken for granted that the charset is unicode, such a setting would be unnecessary in the player applications.
