Why is this important and essential for non-english sites?
It makes life easier.
Mainly is the way the URLs are created. I haven't studied much wolf site code on how it handles strange foreign article titles but many times I had troubles dealing with URLs like
^^That is a copy/paste of a perfectly working link I created in wolf demo. Many times I had to explain to non-technical people that the link to an article they were trying to copy had issues.
Note: An even stranger article title I used, created a link name like ...?4238425842.html . That is also strange and I could do nothing about it.
Anyway it is a matter of opinion.
I have seen problems even in wordpress with this kind of logic.
In joomla it was really simple. I just told them if they wanted to avoid this problem they could just use equivalent latin letters for the Alias of the menu (if the auto-generated was not nice).
Anyway, it makes life a lot easier and as a plug in it would be easy to enable/disable.
 I think slug partially might solve the problem... but I still think alias entry is still needed
