Any font used by Emacs for the default face will always be able to
support ASCII characters, but that is not necessarily true for
non-ASCII, not even for Latin (although in practice most if not all
fonts do support the Latin-1 Supplement block.

This isn't about importance, this is about potential slowdown in
displaying a simple integer result because Emacs needs to look for a
suitable font.
