I'd say, more accurately: the problem is that Emacs does not support
such use-cases.  It would be nice if we did: having comments in one
encoding and strings in another is not such a corner case.

We would also need a way to encode different regions differently.
Perhaps adding special text properties to guide the encoding process
would be a way of doing that (we already have charset properties for
similar reasons).
