Java uses a subset of UTF-16 that excludes surrogate pairs


Ah...I wondered why your comments were so off base. No you are incorrect. It includes surrogate pairs. And it always has.

String (Java Platform SE 8 )[^]

"A String represents a string in the UTF-16 format in which supplementary characters are represented by surrogate pairs" 


Matter of fact you can also use other languages in the code. Also something that has always been possible.

Java: Unicode in Source Code[^]

I am going to ignore the rest of your comments related to that since your initial assumption was wrong.

As I already said, I have delivered internationalized products for decades.

And I have delivered products that were specifically limited to the United States. By their very nature.

7-bit ASCII and nothing else to a subgroup of potential customers


Not sure exactly what you are referring to but I work in high volume applications. And thus the size of the data matters. Both on the wire and in storage.

And a lot of text even for international applications is not something that users see. So differentiating between the two is a design consideration.

storing all text in a database as UTF-8;


There are performance implications to doing that.

And cars didn't have seat belts for decades. Hindsight means nothing.

Write all your software to always be prepared for non-ASCII characters, in any context


Absolutely not.

Just like I would not write an application to support 4 billion users just in case it might happen.

When I write software I get paid for writing it. Not for spinning endlessly about possibilities that very likely might never happen.

And I, perhaps unlike you, have worked on applications which would NEVER be used anywhere else. I am not going to detail that but consider if I had worked on a US defense contract for a nuclear missile. Do you think it will need to support the Russian language?
