Comment 1 Simo Sorce 2013-06-05 14:06:59 UTC
This product can be used internationally so we can't arbitrarily restrict postal codes to one nation's specification.

I propose WONTFIX here.

Comment 2 Martin Kosek 2013-06-05 14:23:10 UTC
I agree. I do not see point in giving arbitrary strict validation on these fields.

Canada is not the only country, I would not want to limit other countries who may potentially have UTF characters in this general field.

Closing as WONTFIX as Simo proposed.
