I wonder if this might give Aaron the wrong idea...

In my exposure to encoding topics, discussions, articles, etc. "native"
encoding is the term that is commonly used as a descriptor for encodings
other than Unicode.

While Unicode forms the basis of Windows 2000, calling it "native encoding"
may lead to confusion.
