Fair enough. Trying to keep in line with “UTF-8 all the things” so that we can
1) not restrict languages (for instance let’s say the German company tüv produced a toolchain and required the umlaut’d U).
2) Allowing these target tuplets to exist in JSON files safely for other proposals I’m writing like linker scripts and response/option files

I would expect that we instead specify the allowable characters, perhaps deferring to Unicode UAX#31 (https://www.unicode.org/reports/tr31/tr31-31.html). Assuming that the basic source character set doesn't suffice for this. The target tuplet appears on command lines and we don't control that environment.

I know we've been on a modules kick recently, but this is tooling related, and I would argue deserves some time. I've attached a copy and (following discussion) a P version will be mailed for Belfast.
