Discussion on: Why you don't need to remap the escape key in Vim !

<C-[> is impractical for me because I access [ via Alt-Gr. The <Ctrl-c> combination is more convenient for me.

Yes it's true that is not practical for everyone ! It depends on your keyboard map. And sadly the vim keys are only optimized for the en_us layout.

It's not that bad, I just use other abbreviations. Vim allows me extensive remapping according to my habits. In addition, I can save the debugged configuration on GitHub, for example, and distribute it to all my computers.

Try use <Ctr-c> to exit insert mode without configuration.

Next: Try <Alt-d>d or <Alt-k>, <Alt-x>, etc.

I will see if I'll get to using the Alt key, since with i3, I am already using the Super and the Ctrl key in many programs.
