This is because CP-1252 is a superset of Latin-1, so probably a more useful default. This will be especially useful for Pod created on Windows platforms, where the use of the subset of characters is more likely to occur.

FYI, this is now on CPAN in a test release, 3.29_3. Details here:

Please test!
