I agree on turning on unify-8859-on-encoding-mode by default.

As for removing the ability of turning off
unify-8859-on-encoding-mode, I'm not sure.

If we remove it, that means all Emacs codes can assume
unify-8859-on-encoding-mode unconditionally.  If that
decreases some cost of maintaining some code, I agree with
removing it.

If keeping it just means that keeping a few variables and
functions, we don't have to remove it now.  We can remove it
after confirming that there's no case that
unify-8859-on-encoding-mode does something bad through the
pretest period of 21.3.
