I appreciate the intent (really) but I feel the result of tip-toeing around unicode rules just generates a lot of complexity, makes the general case complex and special cases simple, when it should be the reverse (general case → just UTF-8 with no additional rules, special cases → just use binary)

There are 7 (!) text encoding cases in your proposal
