I mean, one of the advantages of unicode is that it should not be affected by the system code pages and such, so hopefully this would not cause problems even on some more exotic setups. (And I am pretty sure I remember already seeing some chinese chars in some of our data formatter tests)

I only glanced at the proposal, but unless I misunderstand the type only fits UTF-8 characters representable in 1 byte, which are basically just ASCII.
