well by "with utf8 encoding" I somewhat loosely meant using a native
unicode encoding at the point you are selecting an 8bit font.

But I wasn't suggesting doing anything this time as (as seen with
inputenc) getting the timing and order of tests right to cope with
existing usage is likely to be tricky.

My point was mainly that any warnings about the need to use fontspec
rather than fontenc with lualatex is really something those two packages
need to handle, inputenc can't do it as you can get the problem without
even loading inputenc.
