+1 in principle.

In terms of getting there... I don't think we can assume that existing
properties are UTF-8 text. So, any heuristics we use now must continue
to live in the code base for A Good Long Time, and be applied to untyped
legacy properties.

This is also a big enough change that it probably needs to wait until
after 1.0, even if some nice person implements it before then. Though,
if the implementation turns out to be not so bad, I'd be open to
changing my opinion on that front.
