Having thought about this, I don't think it would be a good idea.
Terminals are restrictive for more reasons than their keyboard input,

I've been working on a minimalist UTF-8 library for the editor, based
on Plan 9's libutf, except designed for native Unix, with support for
Unicode beyond the Basic Multilingual Plane, and without the
vulnerabilities on 64-bit systems. I'm not sure if I should release it
separately as well?
