[help on a bug] utf8 encoding for the vim tutor

Hi i18n people,
  I'm one of the maintainer of the vim package, I need your help on
#298554. Briefly, the problem is that the Chinese version of the vim
tutorial (available when executing 'vimtutor') is available in two
encodings (cp950 and big5). 

The bug reporter is asking for a third encoding (utf-8) to be made
available. While I have no problem with that, I'm a bit worried by the
last part of the bug report, about "fairness" wrt Traditional Chinese
users. Quoting from the bug report:

  PS: I admit it seems not neutrality for Traditional Chinese users, but
  I have no easy way to keep neutrality between Simplified Chinese users
  and Traditional Chinese users, maybe someone else can give better
  patches.  Anyway, It's better than mess-up.

Could you please comment on that? Am I going to make Traditional Chinese
users angry by adding the utf-8 encoding of the tutorial. I can hardly
see way, but better safe than sorry.

Many thanks in advance for your advice!
