So: The _string_encoding_ state of each OP must be one of these:
0. the default -- follow each string's current encoding
1. "use byte" -- all strings are one-byte
2. "use utf8" -- all strings are UTF-8 (*not* necessarily Unicode!)

And the _character_set_ state of each OP must one of these:
0. the default -- characters are Latin-1, UTF-8 is Unicode
1. "use locale" -- characters are $ENV{LANG} (set at runtime)
Too complicated
For users, or for us?
This is an interesting question indeed. For us: definitely. But for
users? Maybe too... Anyone having ideas?
