Yes, it works because it overrides the translation table
created by unify-8859-on-decoding-mode.

But, it results in that a Latin-2 char read by iso-2022-7bit
is different from what read by iso-latin-2.  I don't think
such a change is a good idea.

It will stop unibyte<->multibyte automatic conversion in any

I think unify-8859-on-decoding-mode is still only for those
people who knows the consequence of the command well.
