    If the user thinks of the "stuff" as characters, they will be unhappy
    if the editor displays raw bytes for something that could be decoded,

What case does that refer to, concretely?

Emacs normally recognizes UTF-8 text and decodes it.  If some text
isn't proper UTF-8, it may use raw bytes for that text.  But when does
it do this for text that can be decoded as UTF-8?  I don't think
that ever happens.
