UTF-8 can encode any character in Unicode. Unicode has long represented
every character in JIS 208 and JIS 212 among others. Unicode 3.1 adds
another 42,711 unified Han characters. See
http://www.unicode.org/unicode/reports/tr27/

So if there are any characters missing I would expect them to be very rare.
