    I'm talking that using the display table in multibyte
    session is not good.

    We don't have to use the display table even for unibyte
    buffers.  Even for a unibyte buffer,
    get_next_display_element in xdisp.c doesn't generate a octal
    form "\XXX" for a code in the range 128-255 if the code can
    be converted to a multibyte character by

It sounds like you're suggesting that we eliminate the display
table feature.

Perhaps the display table is obsolete as a means of displaying
non-ASCII characters, assuming we set up for proper conversion
to unibyte according to the language in use.  But aren't display
tables used for other things too?
