I think what we need comes down to this: Where it makes sense for a 
Perl module to store Perl values and return them to a client, it should 
preserve the flags on those Perl variables as much as possible. Flags 
include "ut8" and "taint". Where it doesn't make sense (because the 
underlying implementation isn't designed to support anything other than 
simple ASCII strings, for example), it shouldn't.

N'est pas?
