Thanks for jumping in.
The one thing I wanted to ask about was the “without ever restricting trail bytes to less than 80..BF”. I think that could be misinterpreted; having thought about it some more, I think you mean “considering any trailing byte in the range 80..BF as valid”. The “less than” threw me the first few times I read it and I started thinking you meant allowing any byte as a trailing byte, which is clearly not right.
Otherwise, I’m happy :-)
