Since you control the dirnode format, wouldn't it be easier just to add 
a "this isn't Unicode" flag, rather than translating to a reserved range?  If 
the flag is set, the name is opaque binary data.  Otherwise, it's UTF-8.

Hmm.  That suggests another option for Zooko's list:  Provide per-file name 
encoding in the dirnode format.  Set it to whatever the FS says it should be 
set to.
