Is that the expected target string format for string2key operations?

We use our own implementation of iconv() for the UTF16 -> UTF8
It (rightly) rejects the random data as not being valid UTF16 input.
As far as I can tell, it is not possible for random bytes to simply be
described as UTF16 (and then converted to another charset), so I suspect
we will need a filter or modified function.
