This brings to mind the dilbert cartoon where dogbert is giving out his
pager number with a tilde in it - so that noone can call him.

Although this change is not with the same intent, I can still almost hear
customers saying "how do I type that little n with a squiggley line over
it?". Effectively, this would be equivalent in effect.

Or even more fun, trying to convince users that a little n with a
squiggley line over it ISN'T the same as just a plain old n.
