UTF-8 only encode codepoints (0x00FC, 0x0075 and 0x0308).
Unicode rules how those codepoints are interpreted.
Some "characters" can be represented via different codepoint
A simple example is "ü"
U+00FC LATIN SMALL LETTER U WITH DIAERESIS
U+0075 LATIN SMALL LETTER U
U+0308 COMBINING DIAERESIS
There are much more complicated cases in polytonic Greek, Hangul(Korean)
One way to ease the problem would be to specify one of the 4 so called
normalization forms in RFC2440 3.4. (Text).
Nevertheless user input needs to be normalized.
