Bug 1067911 removed ARMSCII8. My understanding is that non-Gecko-based software has never supported this encoding except unknowingly via font hacks, so even though Thunderbird previously offered this encoding in the message compose encoding menu, I think Thunderbird should not keep this encoding.

comm-central should either
 1) Remove this encoding form charsetalias.properties and the like. (Preferred.)
OR
 2) Import the removed encoding into comm-central.

There's no refs to this in comm-central anymore. And I agree we shouldn't import the encoder.

I was wrong - mxr lied. 
Leave out the 8 and you get some hits, add the -8 and there are none:
