I don't think it really matters.

As I said in a previous message, the question is not `does [A-Z] make
sense?', but rather: `_if_ [A-Z] makes sense, does [a-z] make sense

If someone writes [<cyrillic-char>-<chinese_char>] then they they get
what they deserve; it's not emacs' fault.

.Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
