cubicweb #3171892 Why is source encoding utf-8 by default in skeleton? [open]

I found it quite surprising to notice that skeleton files header have coding=utf-8. What's the reason for this?

It seems to me that most people would write source code in plain ASCII, and that setting encoding to utf-8 might actually cause problems (like insertion of non ASCII characters by mistake won't be detected).
