Would it be acceptable for you to add a new option to switch to UTF-8 in Python 3.6, and discuss later if it's ok to enable it by default?

In the python-ideas threed, you wrote that Windows allow surrogate characters in filenames, but not the UTF-8/strict Python codec. Would it make sense to use UTF-8/surrogatepass codec to avoid any unicode error?
