I mostly based the encoding on some other locales i've looked at: most of them
specify an ISO encoding. 
As far as Crimean Tatar, web sites appear to favor windows-1254, and ISO-8859-9.
However, as far as i know, desktop's locale doesn't affect browser settings, so
UTF-8 would be as much, or perhaps more acceptable: would have the advantage of
more characters supported (could probably come in handy in text processing in
some apps), w/ barely any performance penalty. 
I would rely on your judgment on this one, but indeed UTF-8 does appear to be a
better choice, and it appears other locales are UTF-8-based, despite the source
comments. In that case, making UTF-8 the base would also be the right thing to
do, as i don't think there'll be a reason to ever have another base.
Please let me know if you'd like me to submit the locale w/ UTF-8 replacing
