But you have to do it for each candidate character. Or is there some easy
way to search for the next latin-9 character in a predominantly latin-1
buffer?

I was in such a situation yesterday. Normally I use latin-1 encoding but
switched to language environment latin-9 to edit some files containing Euro
signs and forgot about this change. Then I loaded a 400 line DOS file
containing "-*- coding: cp850 -*-" in the first line. Emacs encoded all the
umlauts already in the file as latin-1 but encoded the typed umlauts as
latin-9. And after minor changes all over the file and a few interruptions
I didn't remember which parts were changed and which were old ...
