The "fight", if you want to characterise it as such, is for 
interoperability, not standards. Standards are just a tool we use today 
for that purpose.

For these purposes, we can ignore UTF-32. It's poorly implemented if at 
all, it's hardly ever used, and it provides no useful benefits for 
transport. Anything we can do to steer people more towards UTF-8 is a win.
