If HELLO displays correctly, it means that Emacs has all it need in
order to display characters, and the problem lies in the
encoding/decoding process. If we recoded HELLO into UTF-8, then if
people were having problems displaying utf-8 encoded text, looking at
HELLO would just not work. At least now, it is a way to quickly
narrow down the problem.

No, they are people that know how Emacs works, and are trying to help
by narrowing down the problem.
