which has a better explanation of the problem(s) of using multibyte
encodings with BibTeX. Sorting is broken, of course, but apparently
some BibTeX styles have even worse problems.

I haven't been following this too closely, but ISTR that cross-
reference labels, like TeX command names, are limited to ASCII letters
and digits 0-9. You might get away with accented characters using
some encodings, but it would probably break horribly with UTF-8.
