This is actually a Android-ism: Android requires that all classes specified within AndroidManifest.xml -- <activity/>s, <service/>s, etc. -- must ONLY contain ASCII characters. Ditto the package name.
Failure to do so results in an Android package installation error:
> W/PackageParser( 281): /data/app/vmdl-715088571.tmp (at Binary XML file line #5): <activity> does not have valid android:name
Our AndroidManifest.xml generator should check the generated type names to double check that the resulting names only contain ASCII characters, and "do something" if they don't (replace them? error?).
