Comment (by hnla):

 Given your comments above & that this is really a root issue in WP...

 > <snip> but relies on iconv

 As it's an extension to PHP & as you say ''which might not be available''
 I think that rules this out as a fix?

 `mb_convert_encoding()` possibly?

 Adding an external library sounds like a bad idea given that WP ought
 to/will fix at some point.

 If this causes issues for WP sites in general then we are fixing sites for
 images in one small respect while leaving the wider issue existing which
 seems odd to me, the sites are broken for images regardless of what we do?

 I find this an odd issue given WP places importance on
 internationalization yet that last ticket is years old!

 I am proposing we close this as a 'wontfix', r-a-y you prompted on the WP
 ticket and I think we need to leave it there but I leave that decision to
 you :)
