The .elc files are identical, but visiting the .el files will (or
might) use different fonts, because the charset information is lost.
(You will see that I jumped through some hoops to do something similar
with etc/HELLO.)

So I don't think we should make this change without considering
whether the charset information is as important nowadays as it was
back then.  And I'm not really sure who to ask about this.
