Six or seven years ago we had a big discussion regarding the 
language(s) to be used in the IETF.  Harald was IETF Chair when this 
discussion took place, and he declared the consensus to be that the 
IETF would use on language: English.

I do think it would be useful to look at representing author names 
according to the individual's preference. 

And addresses. And there's also the question of useful examples
in drafts discussing I18N issues.

that non-English file names are consistent with the consensus that was 

Agreed; I think there are too many practical problems in that,
that really aren't ours to solve.
