Do you think it should be put into control.ctl and control.ctl.local
with that syntax?
Or should a third file be used?  (control.ctl.encodings?  which would
allow not to use "/encoding/")

If a control article contains an explicit charset, should it be used
instead of what is specified in this file?
Should another option be added?
Another better syntax?

Shouldn't we keep the "from"?

    /encoding/:control at usenet-fr.news.eu.org:fr.*:iso-8859-15

It might be useful if there are several senders!
