Good question. I didn't test this way with a working DB.

Don't know if [BE][forceCharset] has the effect to transform latin codes 
in the DB to utf8 automatically.

Some search functions on DB level may not work as expected, because 
utf-8 has variing length of chars if the DB isn't informed of it.

Try and report
