No, you don't have to with US-ASCII and iso-8859-1.
Sure you do. It's not a difficult encoding, but it still is an encoding.
Unicode is a character set, not an encoding, so that sentence is broken.
Wait. You are saying that a sentence of the form "X is an encoding of Y" is broken in English is Y isn't an encoding?

I guess that "UTF-8 is an encoding of Unicode" is equally broken. For the reason that Unicode isn't an encoding in that sentence either.

    Sure you do

    Why do you keep insisting there's a need to apply an identity function? Or are you saying decoding ASCII isn't an identity function? It's hard to tell since you're nay-saying without any explanation.

    You are saying that a sentence of the form "X is an encoding of Y" is broken in English [if] Y isn't an encoding?

    I seem to have misread what you said. (Perhaps I missed the "of"?) Striken.
