As my musical education and practice is from a different note
language, I cannot really say much about the motivation of that
approach.  In my country one would never call a "cis" just "c" when
talking about music, not even informally (but then nobody wants to
get caught being informal anyway).  Is this really significantly
different in English?

Yes, it is, AFAIK.  A similar situation exists in countries where
solmisation is common.  If you use do, re, mi, for singing a melody,
accidentals are normally omitted.

In England, people who don't understand music would refer to a note on the top line of a treble staff in G major as an F. Musicians would always, always, call it an F sharp.
