Actually that's not a "real technical reason".  If you could point to
a package with a bug that would be a serious problem if people used
UTF-8, then that would be a real technical reason.  But saying "it
isn't required for sarge" doesn't mean that it actually doesn't

FWIW, I use a UTF-8 locale on sarge and sid exclusively, and I have
seen no multibyte-related problems.
