If you are thinking about remote client connections, the solution for that
is not easy.  emacsclient is a relatively simple program that has none of
the machinery we have in Emacs for determining the suitable encoding.  How
do you envision the client will know what encoding the server should use?
If it cannot know that, how will it populate the new directive you have in
