The RTTI will stay ASCII as we (at least as far as I know) don't plan to 
extend the compiler to allow non-ASCII identifiers.

For accessing property values the same applies as for any other unit. If 
you use unit "typinfo" the unit will use AnsiString parameters and 
"System.TypInfo" will use UnicodeString parameters (at least for those 
methods where the parameter is just a "String"). Internally then the 
parameters need to be converted accordingly of course.
