Actually, I can see a couple of use cases.  I have a blog that by 
default only produces ASCII-safe slugs for the URLs which means that if 
you are a chinese person you will only get the ID based fallback there. 
  If I could safely detect if the setup supports unicode identifiers in 
URLs in a way that works, I could give a good default and warn the user 
if they change the setting.
