Actually, I can:

  emacs -Q
  M-x set-variable RET unibyte-display-via-language-environment RET t RET
  M-: (set-buffer-multibyte nil) RET
  C-q 0242 SPC

This should display ยข.

So I think we can get rid of making echo-area buffers unibyte, as long
as we make sure that variable is nil (which it is by default).
