Because texts can be copied and pasted in email messages from HTML files
and then inevitably they can go to a mainframe environment (or UNIX) and
back... Data loss guaranteed if the C1 space is used for graphic
characters. In French this is dramatic (for the EURO sign as well, and for
Finnish too).
