SimConnect only for the old world and their children

It is an incomprehensible restriction that SimConnect transmitted file paths work only with the exclusive use of the Latin character set. P3D4 easily loads flight plan files with names in Malay or Russian script, but SimConnect only communicates this information to interested add-ons as a chain of question marks. Why does LM not use the UTF-8 character set for SimConnect communication? It is backwards compatible and the conversion is done with three lines of code. Think a little bigger!
