If those chars are not used at all, then yes :)
And I don't recall I was exactly propsing changing meaning of minus

A single word written in local language should not. But its a perfect way
to make whole code look like a mess.
I think it is very interesting experience to use Cyrillic letters, since
many are identical to Latin. So it would not be programming lessons
in the first place, but rather constant changing of keyboard layout,
and then trying to find unexplainable errors.
