There are at least two related bug 

  http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=755
  http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=162

which would also benefit from that. Transcoding the files to UTF-8
should not be difficult, and ensuring that there is always an
appropriate 'charset' parameter in the HTTP header should not either. 

What probably would be difficult is to ensure that the content really
is UTF-8 encoded if the style sheet input is not but I think that is
a separate issue.
