Well, yes it would be, because encodings are pretty well standardized;
there is not likely to be any user-visible difference between one
platform's idea of UTF8 and another's.  This is very very far from being
the case for locales.  See for instance the recent thread in which we
found out that "en_US" locale has utterly different sort orders on
Linux and OS X.
