default character encoding for everything in debian


I've an issue, that I forgot to set the character encoding of tomcat to utf-8 
after reinstalling a server.
Now, before I report a wishlist(?) bug to tomcat, I want to ask (and invite to 
discuss) shouldn't utf8 be the default character set everywhere? So when 
installing a package from Debian I can assume that where a character encoding 
can be set, it't set to utf8.
MySQL would be another example, which to my knowledge uses isoXYZ as default 
character encoding.
