What is the use case behind the a""-Prefix? Why do you need a compiler error on non-ASCII-Strings?

There are strings, that should be ascii file-names, user-names, tags for states

I work with Search & Replace over many files. Sometimes I get it wrong.

So I get an error, if something is wrong after a false replacement or a change of someone, who doesn't know it should be ascii.

Compile Time Errors do trigger by loading the File without long testing.
