*MUST* be able to pass UTF-8-encoded text, so if a program transparently
passes everything, it complies. Previously there was ASCII-only
resreiction in many protocols, however implementations ignored it, and
currently all major Internet protocols pass non-ASCII characters
transparently, so they now "automagically" comply.
