The compiler is behaving correctly. ISO/IEC 14882 §2.2 ¶2:
"If the hexadecimal value for a universal character name is less than
0x20 or in the range 0x7F-0x9F (inclusive), or if the universal
character name designates a character in the basic source character set,
then the program is ill-formed."
Since U+006F Latin Small Letter O would be in the basic source character
set, you cannot use \u006F.
