You would be right but for the internet.
When systems were not interconnected, or the interconnect was slow and limited, local encodings worked fine. Nowadays with dataflows all over the world local-encoding-only systems are the exception not the norm (show me an ascii-only system and I'm almost sure any serious investigation will find users frustrated by its encoding limitations)
And anyway optimising for the ascii case when you end up turning i18n anyway is wrong on so many levels (speed, security) I won't expand on it.
