It seems pretty sure that everyone has the ability to type A-F and 0-9
in *some* mode of the keyboard. The question is, is it ergonomically
sound to make non-Latin users switch first to Latin mode, then to
Unicode magic mode, enter 4 hex characters, exit Unicode mode,
and return to the original mode.

As far as *necessity*, perhaps; as far as *usability*, no.
