UTF-16 is very useful. I use it in my research project.
If the byte content of a UTF-16 file is displayed in a hexadecimal display then for all plane 0 characters the byte content of the character codes are thereby displayed directly.
Also, all characters that can be encoded in Unicode can be stored in a UTF-16 file.
