I think it's pretty likely that people who start *now* to added non-ASCII

as unibyte and it was good enough that (almost) nobody complained, so
why change?

I've had non-ASCII (ISO-8859-1 actually) characters in my gecos field for at least 10 years, but then again, I'm used to programs not working with anything but ASCII, so I haven't complained :-)
