I agree completely. If I might be allowed to put an additional remark:

For those who haven't looked into eu2 font definition files (fd-files): These files do not normally reencode the fonts, so this fontenc is a LaTeX necessity and does nothing wrt the encoding. For example the eu2 fd file for Latin modern:

\ProvidesFile{eu2lmr.fd}[2009/10/30 v1.6 Font defs for Latin Modern]
     {<-5.5>    file:lmroman5-regular:script=latn;+trep;+tlig; 


(who really likes the eu2 "encoding")
