I think we should follow the RA, since our file is UTF-8. When and if
the RA starts to change existing names, we can reconsider whether to
remove the ASCII fallbacks or not (my instinct says not to).

I agree that we can't include this as a PLT. I think we should add a
Comment: field to 'zgh' explaining that 'zg' is not valid.
