Hi Iain. Actually, for Stem I'm really looking forward to this too.
Stem has special handling for the contact and platform fields (iirc
the only spot non-ascii content can presently appear). Stem's parsers
and API will be simplified once everything is uniformly utf-8. :P

Possibly a stupid question but any reason not to require the whole
descriptor document to be printable characters?
