Sorry I can't follow here.

Of course the term "ANSI" suggests 8 bit, but it also suggest one 
visible character = 8 bit, thus non UTF.

If a type called "ANSI..." is used to hold UTF codes, the term ANSI is 
abused anyway and now the handling of the type can be defined in any way 
that seems appropriate,
