I propose coining the ugly term "validification", meaning "making the
(possibly invalid) input valid"
Name it like you want reminding that the function has nothing common
with a normalization (in Unicode Consortium sense) nor with a canonical
composition/decomposition. It gets rid of an ill-formed UTF-8 trash
(eventually transforming it to a well-formed sequence under certain
conditions controlled by parameter flags).
