Deprecating downgrade of `use utf8`
Message ID:
On a similar note: How do people feel about code which turns off the
"my source encoding is UTF-8" pragma after having previously turned it
on? I.e.

  use utf8;
  my $café = "Ĉu vi havas sandviĉojn?";

  no utf8;

If we disallow this kind of thing, we can remove further weird
cornercases from the parser, because a bunch of unlikely situations no
longer come up.

As with VERSION: Are there any actually-valid use-cases for doing this
kind of thing?
