 No, wchar_t by definition holds numeric values of the character code 
 points wider than 8 bits, for various character sets.
 Particular character set represented by wchar_t may vary depending on 
 the choice of the user.
 Your compile time limit of the character set to UCS is too narrow.
 Character set should be allowed to vary at the runtime. And any 
 character set limitations should be done at the runtime too.
