Yes. It cautiously avoids to make the situation any worse.
I meant my own announced plan which was more agressively aiming for
enforcing UTF-8.

Well, i hope that my cheat sheet for (unsuccessful) kernel contribution
attempts enabled me to create a convincing imitation of an acceptable
patch for GRUB.
To help reading the oversized line salad:
I defined the variable XORRISOFS_CHARSET and added $XORRISOFS_CHARSET
after each "-as mkisofs" in the xorriso command lines.

Tests were made without any LANG setting (effectively en_US.utf-8),
with LANG="", "C", "en_US.ISO-8859-1" (not installed), "en_US.UTF-8",
"de_DE.UTF-8" (not installed). All succeeded.

Have a nice day :)
