I believe that a lot of people do not know that you can use most
Unicode characters in Java identifiers. I did not know myself until
this discussion. Furthermore, to find some examples of those, you
would have to find in the native language of each speaker.

Which fragmentation? People who can write ascii-restricted Python will
not go away and form their own little sect. One of the big issue of
this debate here in English is that the people who have a real stake
(the one who do not master English) cannot join in the discussion. I
was trying to let you know of my experience with native Japanese
speaker that have no or little English capability but people do not
want to listen.
