Antoine: are you characterizing this as a "bug" rather than a "new feature"?

I'd like to see more of a consensus before something like this gets checked in.  Right now I see a variety of opinions.

When I think "conservative approach" and "knows about system encoding stuff", I think of Martin.  Martin, can I ask you to form an opinion about this?
