The idea that we don't use the trema in English to indicate diaeresis is
just naïve.  It's used in names, to indicate that two adjacent vowels do
not form a dipthong, and to return to voice what would otherwise be a
silent e.

Please stop using your desire to circumscribe your own experience as a
touchstone for the needs of the IETF and other users of the RFC series.
