That is the way it is supposed to be according to POSIX.
The "C" environment is ASCII. Newer C standard versions apparently
allow for unicode in C symbol names but I'm not sure if any system
has already implemented this, and I doubt it affects locales (haven't
checked though).

To my knowledge there is nothing in POSIX that says how filenames
should be interpreted. They're always considered a string of bytes.
