Hello Larry, Addison, others,

While I very much agree that this is a valid point in the current 
situation, I also think that some care is necessary. 
Internationalization expertise will still be needed to make sure that 
the core I18N functionality in IRIs isn't affected/damaged by other 
concerns such as those mentioned below, and to help explain features and 
issues to participants on a potential WG with limited I18N knowledge. So 
please don't feel excluded, quite to the contrary.

Regards,    Martin.
