That should do no harm as Gimp is doing about everything in UTF-8 internally.
Plus, any characters that are relevant to Scheme syntax (i.e. not "strings") 
are from 7-bit ASCII and won't be touched anyway when you switch to UTF-8.

Strictly speaking, the values that you are talking about are not ASCII (as 
that only defines 7 bits originally - the upper 127 characters depend on 
which locale you are in and might even be text graphics).

Notepad also stores its data in an encoding, which however is not UTF-8.

Hmm... have you tried using the ALT-<numpad-sequence> for entering the 
values ?  You seem to know the encoding values of the characters in UTF-8, so 
this might work then with Notepad.
