Well, do you mean we use such as "ja_JP.UTF-8", "en_US.UTF-8", and so on?
As I know, it is too premature to use UTF-8 on some languages (includes
ja_JP.UTF-8). Some packages doesn't work correctly with ja_JP.UTF-8
(I think Tagoh-san and Kubota-san know more about). 1st stage does
very limited things, but 2nd stage may do very various things (depends
what's package user choiced).
On the other perspective, try to use UTF-8 for unknown encoding is
good point. I've already use iconv called from jfbterm for convert
local encoding to UTF-8 (unifont set).
I'm planning this.
