> UTF-8 normalisation probably makes sense, but disallowing leading dashes in filenames would disable potentially desirable features like being able to create a file called »-i« in a directory where you don't want to accidentally have »rm *« delete all your files.

Nor would it allow creating "-r" in directories where you want rm to be extra destructive. :)
