I have heard that some Japanese mobile phones are not capable of 
understanding mails written in UTF-8 and expect Shift-JIS instead.

Actually, this is one feature that I would be happy to see go: I 
occasionally drop in Unicode characters into my messages all the time, 
and the editor should upgrade to UTF-8 automatically if that is the case 
instead of going "Oy, you're not using UTF-8, you can't do that, unless 
you want me to make you do UTF-8?"
