Hello Maciej and Anne,

In the spirit of Stephen Deschamps suggestion in the "Design  
Principles" questionnaire, perhaps change the example paragraph:

"Italics is useful because it applies to many bicameral scripts, even  
though some scripts have no such concept. Similarly, ruby is useful  
for many scripts, even though it has a CJK focus."

to:

"Italics is useful because it applies to many bicameral scripts, even  
though some scripts have no such concept. Similarly, ruby is useful  
mostly for East Asian languages, but it still provides an important  
semantic markup idiom for that region. It may be useful for  
specialized semantics in other languages too"

I think that better expresses the spirit of the principle and also  
removes the jargon: 'CJK'.

Take care,
Rob
