I'd like to try to fix any misconceptions presented in such docs, but
looking at perlunitut, the only mention of the UTF8 flag is the vague
description of the internal format you shouldn't concern yourself with. The
document appears entirely correct, though it is mostly talking about usage
of text and binary strings (something you have to know in any language),
and not the Perl implementation details we're discussing. Did you perhaps
mean a different document?
