Apparently which charsets are unsafe depends on the current locale.

If I start Emacs with LANG=it_IT.UTF-8 emacs -Q, then the charset
property is not printed.  Even though that locale is not installed and
this warning is printed at startup:

(process:23336): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
        Using the fallback 'C' locale.

With LANG=en_US.UTF-8 emacs -Q the problem is the same as for

Maybe this dependency on the current locale is useful, but the docstring
of print-charset-text-property should probably mention it.
