In unibyte buffer, by setting
unibyte-display-via-language-environment to non-nil, 8-bit
characters are converted to multibyte characters by
unibyte-char-to-multibyte on displaying.  The merit of this
is that when a user changes the language environment, 8-bit
characters are displayed correctly based on the current
language environment.  The demerit may be that unibyte users
don't want such a nifty feature, but want to stick to the
font he specified.
