Won't help.
UTF-8 was designed to be binary-compatible with ASCII and ISO 8859-1
(‘Latin-1’), so the resultant data would be (or at least, should be)
identical anyway.

Besides, Unicode exists precisely because many other character sets/encodings
support a relatively limited range/scope of characters (let alone whole
scripts). AFAIK, characters with diacritics (such as accents), are not
available in (true) ASCII. ISO 8859-1 (or the updated 8859-15) should support
characters used in most Western (Europe) languages.
