I think this comment is not particularly critical. The working group 
felt in our call that the examples were a bit disjointed. However, 
producing an exhaustive list would take some doing. I tend to think the 
added "search engine" example might be still be too narrowly written. 
Only a few of us work on search engines. Perhaps replace "search 
engines" with a more generic alternative such as:

Full-text processing...
Searching...
Search applications...

Internationalization is an architecture.
It is not a feature.
