Thanks for conducting such an extensive and pragmatic test sequence.  It is 
exactly these sorts of combinatorial toss-and-eat activities for which the core 
representation of RFCs have been famously robust.  I've understood that 
robustness as being a continuing requirement.

By my reading of your results, your test demonstrates that raw UTF-8 produces 
unpredictable and/or undesirable outcomes with common tools.

Hence it fails the requirement.
