I think people have already enough trouble dealing with character
encodings that we shouldn't encourage them to put decoded text into
unibyte buffers (I don't even know where/if the semantics of this is
described somewhere in our manuals or code).

IOW, from where I stand, the change in behavior is just fixing
a long-standing bug.
