I don't think so.  That would amount to a significant overhead on all
i/o, since C-x RET c just amounts to binding
coding-system-for-{read,write} around the invocation of the command.
Perhaps you could special-case it somehow in interactive use, but the
issue is most relevant to the other case -- when data are written by a
program with an inappropriate coding system.  You presumably can't do
anything about it for process output anyhow.

Is anyone actually taking care of the issues in Ispell/Flyspell?
