Tags in Ogg are in UTF-8, so UTF-8 to be assumed

Hi, Mosu, a small thing about mmg 2.1.0 Unicode.
The 'tags' (title info etc) in Ogg (Ogg vorbis in my case) are in UTF8,
still MMG reads it as the current ACP (wrong assumption!) to fill the Track name editbox,
resulting a broken string.
If I type a text directly into the "Track name" editbox of mmg,
mmg is happy to accept a Unicode string.
It is just that it cannot 'extract' it from Ogg.
Plus, it complains:
Warning: The Ogg/OGM file ... contains chapter or title information. Unfortunately the charset used to store this information in the file cannot be identified unambiguously. mkvmerge assumes that your system's current charset is appropriate.

This might be so for OGM, but Ogg has well-defined specs, which say Tags are written in UTF-8.
Besides, if the "Track name" editbox is used, the TITLE from Ogg is ignored, so the above warning is maybe pointless and at least confusing. Well, --chapter-charset UTF-8 does work tho...

IMHO, for texts from Ogg, UTF-8, not the Users ACP, should be assumed. Just a thought. No practical trouble at all
Thank you very much!
