If you database encoding is NONE, then one connection could write to it as
UTF-8, another as WIN1250 etcetc and now you have logically corrupted
character data when another connection reads the data written by another

It is better to enforce this integrity of your data on the database side,
then to depend on all programs connecting to behave.
