there's not a reliable mechanism in place to run a script in a locale

From my experience running such scripts is no problem, but correct
rendering it might depend on the client/editor.

It depends on the source and target encodings. For most pairs of source and 
target encoding there is some case where reinterpreting a string from the
source encoding as a string in the target encoding (without proper conversion) 
will result in an invalid string in the target encoding.
For instance, if a script were written in ISO-8859-1, many possible sequences 
involving accented characters would actually be invalid in UTF-8.
   Um... I think you are answering a case that is different than
what is stated (i.e. locale being same as used in script).  So no
conversion should take place.

(if you have an issue w/that, talk to George.  :-) )
