I think the effects of this bug are significant enough that it should be fixed
for 1.9.1, and ported to 1.9.0.x after sufficient bake-time.

The bug would be expected to affect users in non-Latin locales viewing pages
with Latin text in a non-Latin-specific charset without any lang attribute and
without any Content-Language header.

Whether users see the bug depends on which Latin characters are supported in
the font for their native language.  Many fonts support most Latin characters,
so the effects would only be seen either with fonts designed for a specific
script/language or with less common (Latin-1 supplement) characters.
