Yes. It makes thinks clear. Is the binary code A4 in hex
representation now meant to be presented as CURRENCY SIGN or CYRILLIC
CAPITAL LETTER UKRAINIAN IE or EURO SIGN or LATIN CAPITAL LETTER C
WITH DOT ABOVE or LATIN CAPITAL LETTER I WITH MACRON or THAI
CHARACTER KHO KHWAI? (And I did not look into MS or IBM DOS or winDOS
or NeXT or HP-Roman or Mac-Roman or ...)

No, only in TeX, and there it comes from the names of different STY
files. For TeX too UTF-8 is UTF-8. Both STY files handle some things
differently, so some way was needed to choose between them ...
UNIX is user friendly, it's just picky about who its friends are.
