Oh - what is a "non-default system default"? The "naked" Python has 
'ascii' as default but you can customize the default for a Python site. So 
my Python site has the default encoding 'cp1252'. All applications - not 
only Zope 3 - use this encoding.

IMO Zope 3 should accept other default encodings. And then this test is 
not helpful.
