Yes, when information is not filtered out and transfered intact, there is
always hope that it can be read while one upgrades to a better viewing
system at least (or processed correctly at another level, while the
information is transformed without loss). If at least this data integrity
feature could have been true before in all systems this would have solved a
lot of my problems with characters.

I also think that this feature is great!
