*want* is ambigious...

Directly UTF-8 can encode all the Japanese scripts that is
currently available on Windows platform.

Also Samba can support all Japanese scripts with UTF-8.

My point is that even if Samba can  support all Japanese scripts with
UTF-8, we cannot migrate to UTF-8 soon because of lots of legacy
application and systems that can recognize only legacy charsets.
