I forgot to ask something else...

If a client and a server run on locales/platforms that use different
encodings, they are bound to wrongly interpret string bytes. Correct?
Since the byte strings are by definition *encoded* forms of the Unicode
data, they definitely need to have a shared frame of reference or they
will misinterpret the data, as you surmise. You can't decode something
if you don't know how it was encoded.
