It would be easy also to allow "á" match "a" (by normalizing the
original search string like "A" matches "a" in case insensitive mode),
but this could be added later.

Regarding the usage of the regexp, please consider a simpler way
to use your character-folding regexp that would be just:

(define-key isearch-mode-map "\M-sd" 'isearch-toggle-character-fold)
(defun isearch-toggle-character-fold ()
  (setq isearch-word (unless (eq isearch-word 'isearch--character-folded-regexp)
  (if isearch-word (setq isearch-regexp nil))
  (setq isearch-success t isearch-adjusted t)
(put 'isearch--character-folded-regexp 'isearch-message-prefix "char-fold ")
