The UTF-8 restriction is the only one in your original list that really
worries me. There will be a lot of "data" transactions going around the
world with "foreign" (i.e. non-Western) names and descriptions in them.  It
would seem that there's an argument to be made for putting support for
UTF-16 (at a minimum) in the parser rather than force the applications to do
the UTF-8 encodings ...
