So what are your concerns? Suggestions?
Add a new option specific to Windows to switch to UTF-8 everywhere, use BOM, whatever you want, *but* don't change the defaults.
IMO mbcs encoding is the least worst encoding for the default.
I have an idea of a similar option for UNIX: ignore user preference (LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, LANG environment variables) and force UTF-8. It's a common request on UNIX where UTF-8 is now the encoding of almost all systems, whereas the C library continues to use ASCII when the POSIX locale is used (which occurs in many cases).
Perl already has such utf8 option.
