I understand about the limitations of the current RFC format w.r.t.
non-ASCII characters (but I suspect you wouldn't want to wait for the
new format to be readily available :-).

FWIW I think those two examples would be perfectly fine.  They may not
seem overly expressive or especially illustrative, but including them
might scratch an itch for some readers.

But it's certainly not anything worth holding up publication for, IMHO.
