Actually, the original design of Mule encoding was by RMS.
When I visited MIT to discuss how to integrate the facility
of Nemacs (Japanized version of Emacs) into Emacs, he
explained the idea of using 0x80..0x9F for leading bytes.
Based on it, I implented Mule, and then it is integrated
into Emacs.  I don't remember exact date of that visit;
perhaps 1990 or 1991, but I'm sure I've never heard about
FSS-UTF at that time.
