Yes. As the manual says:

“Don’t enable this if you don’t really know what you are doing. Review your outgoing messages (⌥⌘U) and make sure both server and recipients can handle it.”

When people’s replies to you are broken, that means some server cannot handle it. Your From: header arrived here UTF8-encoded even though our servers do not announce 8BITMIME or SMTPUTF8. So at the very least the MTA delivering the message to us behaved wrong.
