It's a compromise.  Handling of 'fileencoding' in a modeline will be
different anyway.  Other options don't change the way a file is loaded.

Another solution would be to also check the modelines at the end of the
file, then the whole file needs to be reloaded.  While finding a 'fenc'
setting near the start of the file reloads only a small part of the file.

This could be handled like finding an illegal byte in a file.  Then it
can be reloaded with a different encoding too. 

You can tune a file system, but you can't tuna fish
