While that may be true, it is a very commonly-used sledgehammer. Sometimes sledgehammers are good tools to use.

As Eli says, case-folding has been on by default in Emacs for ages. Case-folding is also Indo-European-centric, but that has been OK. As char-folding by and large does not affect unicase alphabets I don't see why readers and writers of non-Indo-European text would care about it one way or another.
