Is there a good technical explanation for why Zope doesn't allow non-ASCII characters in URLs?

I'd like to be able to let URLs work like this example from Wikipedia:


When I try adding an object with ID "メインページ" in Zope 2, I get the following error message:

Error Type: BadRequest
Error Value: The id "メインページ" contains characters illegal in URLs.

Is there a fundamental reason (ie. Python objects can only be ASCII) or is it simply bugs that need to be fixed?

Curiously yours,
