The same reason why `prettify-symbols-alist' with ("->"  . ?→) exists -
because it's prettier than ASCII art :)

Actually nowadays I can't find anymore a terminal that doesn't
support Unicode and doesn't display a shorter and prettier → .
Then the most reliable detection would be to use char-displayable-p.
