Absolutely.  I think that there are some situations where a 
single-encoding approach makes excellent sense, and other approaches 
where the UTF-8/16 choice is better.  I don't think one group of 
applications is much bigger or more important than the other, so I 
don't think a SHOULD in either direction is justified. -Tim
