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).
