Yes, why? UTF-8 is the XML default, but very few general purpose editors 
(i.e. non-XML editors) handle it correctly. So I'm wondering the value 
of this change : can't every dict file use the encoding that's most 
suited for its target language.

Also, how does CVS handle UTF-8 files? I mean what happens if a byte in 
a 2-bytes character is  a "\n"? When checked out on Window, does it 
become "\r\n"? This can lead to very weird questions...
