There's a subtle difference.  The @page tag is compile time, where the
requestEncoding tag is runtime.  If you use the @page tag for anything but
UTF-8, you've just prevented yourself from sharing that page among different
languages (unless you also use the requestEncoding tag which makes the @page
declaration redundant).
