Thanks!

Well, at first I thought that "Latin" means "matching [a-z]".  Finding
out that accented letter qualify, too, was a (pleasant) surprise.
Finding that out using `describe-categories' is a bit tricky, since its
output contains ranges, and I don't know which of them does e.g. "ą"
belong to.  The output of `describe-categories' says "Legend of category
mnemonics (see the tail for the longer description)"; I guess the
"longer" description might say something more.  For instance, this line:

(define-category ?l "Latin")

in characters.el

could be replaced by

(define-category ?l "Latin
Latin letters (including those with diacritics)")

This way, there would be at least a hint at the bottom of the *Help*
buffer displayed by `describe-categories'.

WDYT?  Would you like me to prepare a patch?

Best,
