    Perhaps for the same reason that these other in-tree filesystems are
    sensitive to the character encoding:

    Joliet (ISO-9660 extension), FAT/VFAT, NTFS, BeFS, SMBFS, CIFS.

    Those filesystems will also fail, or give unexpected behaviour (such
    as bytes being changed to '?'), if you pass them names which are not
    in the appropriate encoding.
