If their characters are not in (the current portable subset of) Unicode,

are even worse.

I doubt they are polluting anything.  As I pointed out some time ago,
Google search at least will ignore windows-1252 (vel sim.) encoding
declarations, and do its own analysis.  It may well be that it ignores
all encoding declarations.
