You seem to assume that going multibyte requires that your files be
encoded in UTF-8.  That simply isn't true.  The files can continue be
encoded in ISO-8859-1 or ISO-8859-15; Emacs will decode them into its
internal representation when you visit the file and encode it back
when you save it.  You lose nothing.
