It does. When speaking about CR or LF is does mean the codes 0x0d
and 0x0a. Codes > 0x7f are not used in OpenPGP. How you encode the
message is not subject to OpenPGP and for user IDs and other strings
used within OpenPGP packets UTF-8 encoding is required.
So if you want to use these characters, there must be a reason for
this and you probably should not convert them. Due to RFC822
restrictions you have to encode those characters anyway. Do not use
ascii armor but RFC2015 for such messages.
