It is certainly useful to see whether Emacs is set up correctly for
its non-ASCII support, including coding systems, fonts, and other
facilities.  Whether other software understands the way that file was
encoded is irrelevant for this.

Until Emacs supports the full range of Unicode characters, the
encoding used now to save etc/HELLO is about _the_only_ one that can
do the job.  Let me remind you that in the released versions of Emacs,
only a subset of the BMP is supported.
