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).
