As I said in a previous post, these use cases would be well served by a command
line switch. People who do not care about distributing their code can just do
alias python = python -I

On the other hand, people who want wider distribution would test without the
switch and easily check that all their identifiers are ASCII.

The default should be the best choice for the python open source community, that
is ASCII identifiers only.
