BTW, I forgot to add there are also, or were, Perl's built with EBCDIC
support, which treat "binary" data as EBCDIC instead of ASCII.

Outside of case-transformations though, in either form, perl really
doesn't care, they are just buffers with data about codepoints with
different structures, some of which it knows how to process (utf8),
some which it doesn't (binary).
