When will it be handy?
I could see it being handy if it encoded allowed any Unicode character
to be represented using ASCII characters, because that would enable me
to enter Unicode at a keyboard. But it only allows some Unicode
characters, and I still need a UTF-8 aware editor to enter the others!
So (a) why not make it ASCII-based rather than UTF-8 based, and (b) why
not allow numeric character references to be expanded for the characters
that don't have names?
