A support for UTF-8 is already provided by ucs.sty available from
CTAN. I think it should be included on the next CD.

As for encTeX, I think it can have some future if you make it an
upward-compatible extension of TCX tables. Then you should try to
persuade e-TeX authors to merge encTeX and e-TeX together.
