>> default_utf8 is a default, and it will be read only when defaulting, so

>> %base-services contain both console-font-service and mingetty-service which
>> both access the ttys.  Linux VTs are created on demand.
>> Once the VTs are created, us setting default_utf8 is too late.
>> We should set default_utf8 before anyone touches tty[123456].

>> Should we just set it in boot-system ? That's probably a nice way -
>> also since I think this setting is quite Linux-specific.
