Sure. People that know me, know I tend toward layered architectures. The 
trick is in knowing where the layer fits.

My contention is that character normalization is such a pervasive, and 
intrusive requirement, that it's better to put it as low as possible so that 
all layers above it can cheerfully ignore it. 

For me, the motivation is similar to that which led to me proposing a single 
document character set of ISO 10646, and adopting Unicode (especially UTF-8 
et al.) as the canonical form for HTML and later, XML.
