Emacs should never use unibyte strings for buffer names.

I don't think we make any effort to prevent this from happening.

And I'm not completely sure that it would be worth the trouble either:
I suspect that wherever a unibyte buffer-name would cause problem
(mode-line, window title, younameit), some other unibyte string could
appear from elsewhere just as well, so enforcing multibyte buffer-names
wouldn't close the vulnerabilities.

If we don't at least ENCODE_UTF_8 should do the right thing. Is the coding for these kind of strings known? If not and we don't enforce encoding in basic interfaces, we must deal with all existing encodings?
