The capability name needs changing.

  quoted-string      = old-quoted-string / new-quoted-string
                         ; "new-quoted-string" is not allowed as
                         ; a parameter to "require" action.
                         ; "new-quoted-string" is only allowed after
                         ; 'require "utf8-strings";'

You're actually talking about non-utf8-compliant-strings. "utf8-strings" is a poor name for that.

I will refer you to the following messages in the archive:
