I think that the design of utf-8 that makes character starts immediately
recognizable without the need for rescanning or synchronization has been
an excellent idea.  MULE coding lacks this feature.  "less than optimal"
is not the same as "an error".

The coding scheme of utf-8 has enough ingenuity and non-obviousness in
it to make it eligible for a software patent.  Good thing we don't have
to worry about this one.
