IIRC, this question was asked at one of the committee meetings, and the
answer was "yes". It may have been Sun, although I'm not sure.

The rationale was simply that the compiler predated Unicode.

Presumably the vendor will continue with their current encoding for
wchar_t, and use Unicode encodings for char16_t and char32_t strings.
