Yes, of course.  Emacs will have to cope.

Andreas is right, as usual. TAGS should contain hard info about file contents, not guesswork about what Emacs's internal encoding might be, as the latter depends on user input. If the input file is UTF-8 and isn't munged by CRLF removal etc., file byte offsets should equal buffer byte offsets. If not, it's up to Emacs to map the hard info to its internal representation.
