Not here, it isn't:

  (get-text-property (point) 'charset) => japanese-jisx0208

on the Kanji characters, and

  (get-text-property (point) 'charset) => nil


Maybe it depends on how your MUA decodes non-ASCII text.  (I use
Rmail, as you know.)

But I know that the 'face' text property is not enough.  I just
suggest that you use it for now to see if you get enough of speedup in
your code.  We can later find a way of detecting character sets, and
providing new primitives for that, if needed.  (In the display engine,
there's a thing called the "face ID" that is computed as part of
displaying text, which takes the characters into consideration, which
is why I suggested 'face' in the first place.  I will try to see how
to do the same in Lisp.)
