>X multibyte character interfaces:

I did some research, and got some pushback. Apparently,
applications are discouraged from doing UTF-8 work in 
low-level protocol libraries (Xlib) and should instead make
use of higher-level toolkits. It was suggested that this
work could be done in Xft, Cairo, Gtk+ (pango?) or Qt.
The former two are not part of the LSB now but remain
on the list; the latter pair are included as of 3.1.
