Also, the "Everybody can run software that is able to deal with these
decades-old standards" is at least a little disingenuous.  It's a
little like replying to "I don't have any way to run SPARC code" with
"Everybody can get a SPARC or install an emulator".

Yes, I probably could, I don't know, install a Windows box or
something, and thereby get UTF-8 and Unicode support.  That does not
make UTF-8-encoded Unicode suitable for everyone!
