OGR layer encoding can be set to only UTF-8 if OGR TestCapability(OLCStringsAsUTF8) returns true (e.g. KML), but the encoding listbox in the vector layer properties dialog is always enabled with OGR layer. I think it is preferable to make the listbox grayed out if user's selection will not be applied.
