compound-text-with-extensions does, but not pure iso-2022 AFAIK.
Anyway, HELLO is in emacs-mule encoding, which is a 16-bit encoding
based on iso-2022, so only supports a certain fixed number of
character sets (most iso-2022 based encodings only support 2 or 3
character sets).  CVS Emacs does contain some unicode text in HELLO,
but only a subset of Unicode is supported without conversion (hence
the existence of `utf-translate-cjk-mode' which causes the large
translation tables to be loaded).
