I agree there is a bug in distutils. Before we proceed, I think
distutils-sig needs to be consulted. My proposal would be the one I
suggested earlier: all strings should either be Unicode or ASCII-only
byte strings. This contradicts to the documentation that says that none
of the strings must be Unicode, so it would be an incompatible change
(and would indeed likely break packages that currently use UTF-8, and
sdist, but never register)
