Is there any encoding that can represent characters that cannot be 
represented in UTF-8? If so, we may have an issue. If not, then we 
should just require UTF-8. Unicode is supposed to be able to represent 
any character from other encodings. I don't know if it actually does 
that, but I'm not aware of any encoding that can't be mapped to Unicode.
