Situation with csplain is quite complex and you should ask Petr Olšák
why it is needed. Anyway, if you want to prepare a multilingual
document or a manual which has to be available in many languages, then
csplain for Czech/Slovak and any other format for the remaining
languages present unnecessary complexity. I would leave csplain for
those who know why they need it for their work and use LuaTeX or XeTeX
with polyglossia especially for manuals and such.
