[OSM-talk] invalid UTF8 characters redux

Some months ago I corrected all the tag values which had invalid UTF8
characters in them. I'm pleased to see that in processing the planet
file every week since then, no more have appeared.
This may just be luck. On the other hand the rails port happened about
the same time, and I'm wondering if the api would actually reject
invalid UTF8 in the uploaded XML - most XML parsers seem to.
If this is the case, we can dispense with the 'sanitize' program for
removing bad UTF8.
Can anyone confirm or otherwise?
