I wouldn't say utf-8 is completely different.  It is a variable-length
coding which uses a few bits of each byte to indicate the length of the
code, just like the scheme under discussion here.  The utf-8 method has
the advantage of detecting partial/corrupted codes at the expense of
needing somewhat more space.
