Is anything but complete acceptance of your opinions going to convince
you that we know what we are talking about?

Look, all I was trying to do, as a person who did some work in this
area for Emacs, and as someone who does get to answer lots of
questions about this, is to tell you that etc/HELLO _is_ useful, and
that the last thing I'd expect Emacs maintainers to do is to remove
it.  Why cannot you accept that?

It goes without saying that in a Unicode Emacs, the one that will have
its internal representation of characters based on Unicode codepoints,
HELLO will be recoded, either in that internal representation or in
UTF-8.  But until that happens, I don't see any reason to recode it.
