NONE only means store the bytes accepted and return them as is, and if a
connection character set is specified, try to convert the stored bytes
to that character set. It does not mean or assume ASCII at all. It just
happens that most (all?) Firebird supported character sets (including
UTF-8) use ASCII as the base for the first 128 characters.
