The proper (non-anglicized) spelling of my name has an umlauted u (ü), so I also 
use it a lot.

I agree 100%.

More and more people are not anglicizing their names when they move to Canada, as 
they once did until the 50s, when my family immigrated; Canada is officially 
bilingual, hence the need for 2 types of keyboards, yet us-intl (also sometimes 
shown as us-acentos) will correctly handle all Western, and likely most Eastern 
European languages, plus a good number of other languages as well; the world is 
becoming increasingly interconnected, particularly textually, through the Internet; 
and there is absolutely no inconvenience to using a keyboard with all of its 
functions intact.
