Data corruption happens in the non-ASCII world, probably because the 
charset is mistaken.  Without the restricted NameChar, XML parsers 
are happy to swallow such corrupted documents and create a correupted 
database, WWW pages, etc.  Restrictions on NameChar forces conforming 
XML processors to detect such corrupted documents.
