Can the nation naming interface be updated so special characters can be used? Things like á, ð, æ, and ö?

But historically it's because our silly file-based architecture made special characters in names difficult to handle.

If it supported non-standard characters, impersonation rates would rise.
EG:
Sedgistan
Sédgistan
Two different names.
An impersonator would have more opportunities.
