I use Less a lot too, and it works fine (Fedora 23). These days the problem with non-ASCII characters typically isn't the Less program, it's the terminal or operating system being misconfigured for UTF-8, or not supporting UTF-8. This problem is not limited to etc/NEWS of course; it occurs with all the UTF-8 source files. The question is whether etc/NEWS is enough of a special case that we should keep it in ASCII despite the rest of Emacs moving to UTF-8.
