Long time ago, I wrote my own inputenc files making *all* high characters
text character. The definition files (latin1jk.def, latin2jk.def,
and latin3jk.def) are available from CTAN (latex/contrib/supported/jknappen).

If the standard inputenc files are changed, I strongly plea for "dual use"
characters. The standard ASCII characters with a few exceptions can be used
in text and math as well. A user expects the high character not to be different
in this respect.

However, the whole setup using active characters makes such kind of change
rather difficult.
