I work in digital forensics and electronic discovery. In the real world, sh*t happens. I often have to wrestle with damaged evidence of all kinds. Ignoring it is not an option. But I can't just ask the bad guys to recreate the incriminating evidence for me—this time, please, without all the nasty character encoding damaged text in it.

So, yes, I often keep such text without a newline in a file on its own.
