--- Comment #3 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> ---
Actually the author of the original proposal was a Swiss/British binational
with no knowledge of Japanese at all. However, some people with knowledge of
Japanese responded to his call for feedback and gave specific descriptions of
what kinds of input modes were useful in Japanese, and specifically what the
use cases for those various input modes were.

Since nobody has done the same for any other locales, the spec doesn't support
those other locales. If anyone has the necessary information for another
locale, they need but file a bug at http://whatwg.org/newbug to describe it,
and the spec will in due course be updated accordingly.
