It's just your opinion that such requirements that might be related to language are unacceptable. It's not a hard and fast rule written down anywhere.
The examples you mentioned are because those things (human rights, handicapped accessibility) are regulated by government. To my knowledge, the language that companies conduct their business in is not. And for good reason... regulating it would be meddling for no legitimate public purpose (unlike equality and accessibility).

So if there are no such requirements, how can a business be faulted for making a perfectly legitimate choice that it is entitled to make?
