    Speaking only for myself, no, I mean all octet streams purported to
    be encoded text, network or local.

We can't do that.  That would be intolerable for users, for the reasons
others have explained.

However, the examples people have offered mostly include working in
pipelines with network services.  Those cases involve noninteractive
processing and using the network.  It would be ok in those cases
to be more strict about decoding.
