It's the opposite of unification. In this context it can mean two
different things:

1. Undo the effects of `unify-8859-on-decoding' mode. That is, wenn
   decoding some encodings like cyrillic or some ISO 8859 encodings,
   then decode them to characters from appropriate mule charsets (e.g.
   `greek-iso8859-7') rather than to characters from the charset
   `mule-unicode-0100-24ff'. This is the default.

2. When decoding UCS encodings like UTF-8, decode characters from
   certain reperoires, e.g. "Greek", to different mule charsets like
   `greek-iso8859-7'. The default is to decode them all to characters
   from `mule-unicode-0100-24ff'. A user can turn this behaviour on by
   customizing `utf-fragment-on-decoding'.
