Backwards compatibility,
Probably countless dependencies in the code.

After reading and understanding about possible charset issues, you'll probably come to the conclusion that there's not much difference between whatever charset conversion is necessary. Also, you probably have learned that the system does many conversions automatically for you already.

This is one of the drawbacks of compatibility vs. starting something from scratch. You need to take care about not breaking existing stuff.
