I have a few comments:

Bison does not care about Unicode at all.  Bison operates on tokens
that are passed to it from the tokenizer.  It operates solely based on
those.  To extract values, you talk to the tokenizer directly (like an
identifier for example).

Lex is really not necessary, writting tokenizers is so simple, that
using Lex for traditional languages is sort of a waste of time, but
that is just my impression.
