Vladimir Volovich wrote an extension for that. You can find the files  
in /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/latex/t2 -- I have no  
further idea. All this UTF-8 stuff in conventional (La)TeX seems to  
be very restrictive. In the LaTeX Companion, second edition, the most  
promising statement is that the utf-8 input encoding supports the  
codes for glyphs found in the usual TeX fonts, which includes wncyr  
and such.

Dominique Unruh's ucs package was going to support the whole Basic  
Multilingual Plane (BMP) of Unicode, but it isn't maintained any  
more. In /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/doc/latex/ucs you find  
some documentation (FAQ, gzip'ed PS files), his site (http:// 
www.unruh.de/DniQ/latex/unicode/) is still on-line.

Petr Olšák has written encTeX which is now part of pdfTeX in TeX Live  
2005 and which has an extension for multibyte encodings (http:// 
trific.ath.cx/tex-mf/enctex/). Maybe it is of help for you.

Isn't Babel able to support more than one language and encoding? In  
order to avoid UTF-8 ...
