I am involved in the RLUG community since it was created ( '98) and most of the people I know would rather read the original.

As long as a whole page is written in one style only ( either with diacritics everywhere or with none ) you have my support. Personally I usually avoid diacritics because in many cases I had bad experience when reading pages which included them, due to missing fonts on the rendering side.
