But why not? It is unquestionably an English sentence, even if one of the words in it has an unusual orthography. ]] I thought we agreed that validating according to "text-en" wasn't a reliable way to determine whether that character sequence is an "English sentence"?

I am tempted to define what I expect "text-en" to specify is something like the set of characters learned in (an American or English) school as belonging to the "English alphabet" -- by "school" I mean a grade school, not a graduate school.
