Not me!  "McCoy", "M=ͨCoy", and "M-ͨCoy" are three different ways of
writing the same surname.  If I were entering plain text data from an
old post card, I'd try to keep the data as close to the source as
possible.  Because that would be my purpose.  Others might have
different purposes.  As you state, it depends on the intention. But, if
there were an existing plain text convention I'd be inclined to use it. 
Conventions allow for the possibility of interchange, direct encoding
would ensure it.
