OK, I admit that I see little purpose to assign non-ASCII names to files relevant to the boot loader.

Being able to label the files in one's native language seems perfectly reasonable to me, and shouldn't be restricted to people whose native language can be written acceptably in ASCII :)

Well, my native language is not written using ASCII and I can't say I ever wanted to name kernel images in my native language.

Now, menu entries in GRUB are another matter but GRUB2 supports non-ASCII for menus just fine.
