Status: Accepted
Change Description: Accepted suggested text

Rationale: As described by the Chicago Manual of Style, the demarcation of
transliterated foreign prose is a significant use case for italics, and the
term "idiomatic phrase from another language" doesn't clearly convey this
broader category. It make sense to include this use case among the other
suggested usages of the i element.
