Such questions almost always stand at the edge of the applicative  
level; what Thomas is requesting -if I understood him well- is that  
since we use UTF-8 by default (and it's not like we have a choice,  
since ODF is XML based) we have to care about the issues related to  
glyphs that are not easily represented. I thus see this as an  
extension of ODF's support of UTF-8.
