That server process is going to have to convert the data from one format to another at some point, TXOR doesn't eliminate the need to do that.
If the UTF16 specifications change in a way that's incompatible with the exiting deployed data, the updated specifications are going to be ignored. The existing data is not going to be thrown away just because someone wants to change a spec. So your worries about how to handle such a problem are meaningless.
