Always do (4): use only characters where there is no problem.  You can
gradually turn case (3) into case (4) ("everyone agrees about the
preferred encoding, so there's no problem.").

Example:
  Lower case ASCII is the preferred encoding of upper-case ASCII.

Now we have case-equivalence; no problem.
