Ok. It's in fact a "western user" centred feature : most of scientific
papers being written in english, we don't enable utf-8 by default.
This is because making non-ascii TeX document may leads to complication
for users to share their documents, if they don't use the same default
charset. And people don't want to risk to share a miscoded document,
only because they have a non-ascii character in their name (or
something like that).

However, I don't know how to produce eastern (I mean, Chinese, Korean
and Japanese) character in ascii within LaTeX. I guess it is not
possible (but it is possible for a long time with Cyrillic, btw).

So, I think a good fix may be export document in utf-8 by default for
eastern languages. It is quite easy to do.


PS: don't hesitate to complains about TeXmacs internationalization.
Your expertise is precious for us. :)
