Yes and no.  Yes, it applies to all non-ASCII encodings.
No, I was not convinced it was useful to have non-ASCII
variable names until I considered the effect it would have
on documenting IRI templates in an RTL language.

That was just my personal tipping point.  There were
already requests for the feature in general, but it adds
complexity to all parsers and thus needed justification.
