Why does it have bad consequences?  Surely UTF-8 is pretty well supported
these days, provided it's correctly labelled as such.  That might
call for a [Set|Add]Charset directive.

If you really want to convert, why not use a transcoding module?
IIRC mod_charset_lite is bundled with Apache as standard.
