And waste keys for characters I can just write well (and just needing to
press the multi-key before entering characters in non-Latex sources?)

I usually use German keyboards, (as I do not have problems with \,
which is the most often heared example for other keyboards).
And my .vim/ftplugin/tex.vim contains:
imap ä "a
imap ö "o
imap ü "u
imap ß "s
imap Ä "A
imap Ö "O
imap Ü "U

If you are used to read them, there is really no reason not to use
this encoding, they are superior in almost any respect.

And no matter if you can understand this or not, there are many people
thinking that way. And those will want to have a spell checker installed
that can cope with those.

BTW: if someone is implementing a better tex support for hunspell to
make more latex-users wanting to switch to it, what about also
supporting to get the languages from the \usepackage[...]{babel}
options and switching of the dictionaries over \selectlanguage?
