Just for clarification:

In the first case, writing Sanskrit in transliteration, one would  
write typically within an English, other Euopean,
or Japanese (or whatever) environment that constitutes the main  
language. One just uses a few additional diacritics
in latin alphabet and would not switch to another languange, since  
word division has to be added by hand anyway.

The other case is the full use of Devanagari in a Sanskrit environment.

So actually the redefinition should be switched off only in Devangari.
