Hey Andy, 
I tried to dig through the logic of this the other day, and I'm not
sure that your suggestion can work.  If "load" ends up calling
"primitive-load", then any file without a "coding:" line is UTF-8.
%default-port-encoding doesn't enter in to it.
But there is a lot between "load" and "primitive-load" that I didn't
try to trace through.  I'm not sure under what conditions "load" calls
"primitive load".
