OK, you keep advertising that.  But it is irrelevant to the
discussion of whether to indicate char folding in the mode-line.
How we do char folding doesn't matter in this context.

What is relevant is that multiple kinds of char folding mean that
it makes little sense to try to indicate them in the mode-line.

IOW, we should not even think about going down that road, unless
someone has a brilliant idea of how to handle a plethora of char
