Multibyte sequences that contain ASCII-like bytes are included by the fact that
they are not excluded. Other representations of the same characters are
excluded, because I thought that that's what you want. If the only thing that
you need for an ASCII-compatible encoding is that characters such as !, ", &,
',... can, *among else*, be encoded by the relevant ASCII bytes, then indeed
that has to be worded differently.

But before we lock down one wording, it might be good to understand why we hase
the ASCII-compatible encoding restriction in the first place.
