You can't be serious. Programs are stored in long-lived incrementally
edited files, sent to other users and fed into compilers from a
variety of vendors, all implementing a standard symbolic code.
Compatibility is important, because one program should be accepted by
any compiler. None of these points apply here.

This is about a user being asked a question in her native language and
given a set of answers labelled in that language. Why force her to
reply in a code dissonant to those answers?
