    327327Currently we heavily constrain legal characters in the 'name' portion of sliver URNs. See GeniApiIdentifiers. This is awkward. In particular characters like periods, and underscores are not allowed, but are very useful as separators.

Some values in this API (e.g. those defined as URLs) implicitly support unicode. Currently, a well behaved aggregate should be able to handle unicode values in at least some arguments. Similarly, a well behaved client should be able to handle unicode returns.

However, this change set does not require that either aggregates or clients support non-ASCII strings, and aggregates should not require clients to accept non-ASCII results where the API does not explicitly require it.
