I'm not an expert, so take this with a grain of salt. But couldn't it
just as easily be said that UTF-8 is a waste of CPU? There are a
number of operations that are constant time if you can assume a fixed
size for a character that I would think would have to be linear for
UTF-8, for example accessing the Nth character.
