Because everything else is a one-way road. We might see the day that
people are translating the documents into other languages, for
instance, and then it would be very annoying if they had to use a
different documentation format just because the one we chose can't
display an Umlaut -- or Chinese, for that matter.
Or consider someone trying to write some instructive examples in the
documentation of the (unfortunately still to-be-written) Boost.Unicode
