Sorry, you've lost me.  Which philosophical issue would that be?

It's illustrated by your next comment:

you're conflating the two different issues of non-ascii characters
and non-working characters.

We disagree about this. They're not orthogonal issues. They're so closely related that they're almost the same issue. Emacs currently makes it harder to deal with non-ASCII and/or non-working characters than it could. Restricting our source code to ASCII and/or working characters has helped us put our heads in the sand about the problem.
