The PEP already explains how other runtimes achieve UTF-8 and UTF-18-LE everywhere: by ignoring the C/C++ locale entirely. While this breaks integration with other C/C++ components, the developers of those languages and runtimes simply don't care, as they never supported integrating with those components in the first place.

CPython doesn't have that luxury, since it is used extensively in locale aware desktop applications.
