I don’t see how you can read the same document as I and reach that conclusion unless you’ve ignored both the “String Types” section and the word “binary” in the table of tag values.

But anyway, there’s no problem left to solve. Now that I see an example of `perlunitut`’s workflow not working as I thought (decode() doesn’t set UTF8 if the string is plain ASCII), I see why this won’t work. As I wrote a bit ago, humble pie.
