"N" should already work, and these should be portable to other locales
too (e.g. a translation could allow "s" for "si").  

As for ?, ^C and so forth, the relevant code is in yesno.c and
rpmatch.c, which are both part of gnulib.  Findutils uses the modules
unchanged.  So, if you would like to see this changed I suggest that
you submit a patch to the gnulib maintainers.  An additional possible
benefit could be that this change would probably also affect coreutils
(for example mv -i and cp -i).
