It matters in the application if the document contains UTF-8 and you try
to do the_string.substr(2) or the_string[3] or convert to upper or lower
case in your document, or sort the strings. I recommend that you read the
documentation for Glib::ustring.

I don't believe that anybody can guarantee that their system will never
need to support UTF-8.
