No, I'm not in the Human UI business.
For protocols and machine-level interop, visualization of glyphs outside
of US-ASCII is irrelevant.
Just how many documents in the IETF RFC series are there where positioning
or shape of non-ascii glyphs are vitally important. I would assume that
those are few, and probably _not_ scattered over all IETF areas and
It might be more appropriate to address such documents with a specific
exception, rather than a "the tail wagging the dog" approach.
