My point is that we should try to make the source code readable
in random environments. 7-bit ascii is a means to that end.
Maybe line endings are relevant to that goal, maybe not.
Certainly DOS eol is OK on *nix and vice versa, dunno about Mac eol.

It's already possible to use e.g. utf-8 characters in variables names
if the Lisp implementation supports it.
