Kenichi Handa said that moving utf-8 earlier would make all files be
regarded as UTF-8, so until that is fixed I agree moving it higher up
in the hierarchy is bad.

But I'm not sure I understand the situation completely anyway.  When I
run emacs in an UTF-8 locale (LANG=sv_SE.UTF-8), which I usually do,
the utf-8 coding system _is_ first in coding-category-list, yet I have
no problems reading iso-8859-1 files.  They aren't regarded as UTF-8.
