The mere presence of these characters is NOT the root cause. These characters are legitimate and helpful when used as intended. See TUTORIAL.he for a pertinent example.
But TUTORIAL.he is not a pertinent example, because it's not a file with source code. It's a pertinent example to show that these characters do have legitimate uses, which is obvious. If you could find an actual source code file in an actual project in which these characters are used with their intended purpose, it would be a pertinent example. Otherwise it is safe and reasonable to assume (as the Rust developers did) that the mere presence of these characters in source code files is a potential problem and must be flagged as such.
