The Encoding Standard suggests that JOHAB isn't supported by all browsers. Therefore, it's unlikely that the Web depends on it. Previously, Chrome deemed ISO-2022-KR to be so rare that it was removed. (It was added back only because removing it without the introduction of a replacement encoding opened up an XSS vector.)

The Korean detector isn't on by default and if we remove JOHAB and ISO-2022-KR, there is only one Korean legacy encoding left: EUC_KR. Therefore, the Korean detector should be unnecessary already. Let's remove it.
