OK, then let me explain my line of reasoning.  Plain ASCII is valid
UTF-8, and if converting with iconv assuming it's UTF-8 fails, you
know it's not valid UTF-8.  So the last 3 possibilities in your
suggestion boil down to "try converting as if it were UTF-8, and if
that fails, you know it's Unknown".
