It seems at odds with the docs for the open function and perlopentut, both of which give examples using it

Ah, more documentation needs updates then! I'll look into it; thanks for the pointers.

binmode in perlfunc, in the current development tree, already has the following change:

-To mark FILEHANDLE as UTF-8, use C<:utf8>. +To mark FILEHANDLE as UTF-8, use C<:utf8>. This will fail on invalid +UTF-8 sequences; C<:encoding(UTF-8)> is a safer (but slightly less +efficient) choice.

    I am not sure what could be safer than failing on invalid data - if invalid data is encountered, failing would be better than e.g. guessing and silently corrupting data.
