We don't have anyone clamouring for this, and the third party module https://ftfy.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ has a lot more utilities for working with messy binary inputs and incorrectly decoded text than we'd ever add to the standard library, so I'm going to reject this as only being theoretically useful, and not actually solving a practical problem for users.
