I think for any given file system type, you have to standardize what
encoding is being used. Otherwise, you really need for everything to
self-describe, which quickly balloons the scope.
Perhaps for existing installations that are broken (as Soda says :-), a
mount option to override the encoding could be used... but I think just
for simplicity (and, thus, sanity) you have to pick something and
standardize on it.
