      Description

      QTextCodec interprets non-character Unicode points as invalid.
      Strictly speaking, UTF-xx encodings are reversible. That means, that the 66 non-character codes (including U+FFFE and U+FFFF), are valid UTF-8, and hence are perfectly acceptable within UTF-8 text messages.
      According to the Unicode standard, they SHOULD NOT be used in information interchange, but a recent corrigendum clarifies that non-characters CAN be exchanged (see http://www.unicode.org/versions/corrigendum9.html)
