I mostly agree with your opinion on the UTF-32 functions. They had been added to the proposal in response to comments on earlier drafts. AFAIK the addition of char32_t probably was in part a response to platforms that do not use a UTF-32 wchar_t. If the proposal is put up for straw poll at WG14 again, I'd suggest separate polls for the UTF-16 vs UTF-32 functions. For implementation experience, the UTF-16 functions is what matters. I do consider the UTF-16 / char16_t functions to be quite useful. UTF-16 is still quite relevant today. The format has found its way into many specifications, such as USB and file systems so there are important use case in converting from / to UTF-16. Philipp
