There could be a point in having a utf8 <-> utf32 pair of instructions as the hardware is trivial and the software isn’t given that this encoding is winning terrain and bogs down string searches everywhere. Obvoiusly these would be two output operations as we need to know how many bytes were consumed/produced. Just the count output would be useful for strlen applications. That said it is really a wart for an instruction set…
