Comment (by DJPaul):

 Maaaybe. We can add a filter, sure, but I think would probably want more
 unit tests to ensure everything's consistent with the parsing and display
 of these.

 At any rate, since the Special Character plugin allows different
 characters in the username/nicename, I'm tempted to suggest the best
 quickest fix is to enable `BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE` where we
 already handle URL decoding.
