I think it would create some problems. I have experienced
quite a lot of problems with utf-8 files, because they
are not adhered to. That is, many make modifications
to utf-8 files in another charset, eg iso-8859-1.
And then one has to remedy these errors. I have lost
quite some hours on that account. 

It has been discussed before and the conclusion
was also then to not do it.
