I think you explained well that native characters should be written
in "character entity reference", but I think you don't explain enough
the reason why we should not append ASCII expression. (You wrote
it is "verbose". I think it is too weak to be a reason against
"to avoid to be displayed destroyed", that is, "to be read".)

It is needless to say that such efforts are needed. However, a web
page should not choose web browsers.
I hope all major web browsers will support "character entity
reference" in a few months or in a year. Then we can omit ASCII
expression. Until then we need ASCII expressions (native language,
English is also OK).
