> Treating invalid data as sometimes valid and sometime as invalid is a problem. 

What is valid is defined by your application.  AFAIU sqlite3 defaults to utf-8, but it's able to work with latin1 data as well.  The fact that you are mixing utf-8 and latin1 is an error in your application, and while it might be nice if sqlite3 warned you about it, it's not necessarily its responsibility.  Even thought it's a really bad idea, you might want to store data with different encodings and still being able to retrieve them using the right text_factory.

However while trying to reproduce the issue I noticed a possible inconsistency and reported it on #6010.
