That's a valid concern. But

| M -- emacs-mule
| Emacs 21 internal format used in buffer and string.
| Type: emacs-mule (Emacs 21 internal encoding)
| EOL type: Automatic selection from:
|       [emacs-mule-unix emacs-mule-dos emacs-mule-mac]
| This coding system can encode all emacs-mule charsets.
| [back]

,----[ (info "(elisp)Text Representations") ]
|    (1) This internal representation is based on one of the encodings
| defined by the Unicode Standard, called "UTF-8", for representing any
| Unicode codepoint, but Emacs extends UTF-8 to represent the additional

| Unicode.

Would you agree to use utf-8-emacs instead, which covers all characters.

Make abbrev file editable to other editors.
