4.3 Interpreting datatypes
http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-csv2rdf-20150416/#datatypes

When strings are parsed from the CSV data are they first normalized before
being mapped to the xsd:string datatype? For example, are the strings
normalized into Unicode Normal Form C.

It is recommended that text not be normalized if it is already in a Unicode
encoding. If the text is not in Unicode then a normalizing transcoder
should be used and the Unicode Normal Form C should be used.
