I support using UTF-8, but in my opinion there is no point extending the
syntax of the *zone names* (such as "Europe/Nicosia") beyond ASCII. They are
internal identifiers, just like currency codes, language tags, and
region/country codes. For user-friendly display names use CLDR or libraries
based on it, or equivalent.
