Comment (by pento):

 We've had a [https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/21212 similar problem
 in Core].

 Given that the larger index options in MySQL aren't really practical (or
 backwards compatible), I would suggest decreasing the size of the prefix
 on each column. To save on future headaches, I'd recommend making this
 change with `utf8mb4` in mind, rather than `utf8`.

 With a 1000 byte limit, and up to 4 bytes per character in `utf8mb4`, that

 `floor( 1000 / 4 / 3 ) = 83` characters per column.

 So, the index definition should be:

 KEY `singular_plural_context` (`singular`(83), `plural`(83),

 From a quick read through `schema.php`, it looks like this is the only
 index that would need to be changed to support `utf8`, though there are a
 few that would need to change to support `utf8mb4`.
