Please note that in the quoted text, I was talking about converting
from UTF-16 stored in 32 bit wchar_t, to UTF-16 stored in 16 bit wide
character strings.

I was worried about the overhead of using 32 bit for 16 bit values,
and I was worried about the conversion overhead from 32 bit to 16 bit

Nothing about UTF-8 at all.
