comment Would UTF-8 be able to support the inclusion of a vast alien language with millions of new characters?
@JacquesB You should listen to your navigation system more often: "Drive 5 km straight, then turn left". Or even more complex are the instructions for airplanes. Or how do you think we steer spacecraft? We already have written concepts to express movement relative to the rotating plane of the solar system. And even in 3D, like for the Ulysses spacecraft and other sol-polar spacecrafts. So in short: Yes, we can express the dance of the bees in characters, not to say that its easy, but its certainly possible to do that in UTF-8.

See cases 1 - 3 of my example. In none of that cases Customer Name is a useful way of addressing that Object for the User (be it human or machine). InvoiceID PK is.

comment Why not expose a primary key
it depends... on what? I want to learn what the reasons are behind that generic concept to know when to apply it and when not.
