I do not agree that the content should be treated as utf-8. In my opinion it
would seriously degrade the use of "Direct input", since you cannot validate
content containing other encoding than utf-8.

>From a user perspective I don't see why the "Direct input" should be any less
usable than file upload or URL validation. The "Direct input" should of
course(!) respect the encoding of the content and the extended direct input
interface should  contain the possibility of overriding the encoding type in the
same way the other two validation options do.
