Yeah. Defining the ASCII character set as being only the lower 128 characters is kind of like defining text strings by default as "char" variables in C, which is equally senseless in practice, isn't it? There is a full range of ASCII plus extended ASCII within the standard 8-bit byte ... why not always go there?
