There are still applications in Etch which do not fully support UTF-8.

No, you misunderstood me. Currently, if I request a new untranslated
package description via email I get:
Description-de: [latin1 encoded description]
I asked you to send
Description-de.UTF-8: [utf-8 encoded description]
if and only if the user didn't specified an encoding (or utf-8).
If the DDTP recieves a new translation containing
it should still assume latin1. Reason for the latter is mainly to be
compatible with the old behaviour.
You are free to interpret such message as UTF-8 only if:
* you announce it everywhere (status.txt in DDTP mails, on this list,
in the docu) already a few week before
* the encoding check works well
You could nevertheless just reject messages without explicit encoding ...
