We can maintain arbitrary byte sequences now.  It's not terribly
tricky, just not too robust through the use of the eight-bit-x
charsets.

I don't think it's very important that reading and writing malformed
sequences by utf-8.el isn't always idempotent.  Presumably the three
or four relevant test cases could be addressed in the CCL, but I think
there are better things to spend the time on.
