And in the particular case of this package, that uses the machine-readable
copyright format, it is indirectly mandated by the Policy:

 DEP 5: The syntax of the file is the same as for other Debian control files,
        as specified in the Debian Policy Manual. See its section 5.1 for details.

 Policy §5.1: All control files must be encoded in UTF-8.
