We already have a function called maybe_convert_table_to_utf8mb4(), so I think it might make sense to have one to convert the table engine to InnoDB. This could be really useful for developer who want to convert tables they have added, and core can use it on core tables during upgrades.

We can have checks in place for making sure the install is running MySQL 5.6.4 or higher.

and core can use it on core tables during upgrades.

Note that WordPress doesn't specify a database engine and just uses MySQL's default-storage-engine setting.
