Personally, I don't care whether a word, line, region or buffer appears
corrupted.  I'd discontinue spell-checking in any of these cases.  The
interface (ispell.el) has to check which coding system should get
applied.  The user has to check whether the interface got it right and,
if necessary, be able to override wrong settings.  BTW, I don't use utf8
to communicate with Aspell and did not encounter any problems so far.
