No. If you think otherwise, you have completely misunderstood what UTF-8
is all about. Please read the section "What is UTF-8?" in
carefully then you will see, why a base256 transfer encoding lacks
essential properties that make UTF-8 so damn useful.
I must be one of the persons who do not understand what base256 transfer
UTF-8 is, in bytes, just a sequence of 8 bit things, why can it not be
transferred using a bas256 transfer encoding?
