I do not know what you mean if model of strings is broken, but once you
start receiving strings from other modules, user input or whatever
external resource, plus you start combining/concatenating those strings
you would hit the unicode bug. Therefore safe way is to use /aa or /u
modifiers in regex matching in way how you want to do matching.

I think this discussion is out of original request, which is for better
documentation of and better name for utf8::is_utf8() function.
