Hmm, is this even allowed? I mean, is this meant to support non-ASCII
characters, or just non-ASCII encoding of text that contains only ASCII

In my understanding the default "C" / "POSIX" locale uses ASCII. If you
want to have non-ASCII characters in English, you should "translate" them
in po/en*.po. I could be wrong.
