Our meeting will be, basically, all breakout sessions. We will run it  
in "unconference" style. We have a few joint sessions with other  
groups pre-scheduled as breakout sessions. So we could pre-schedule a  
time slot, or I18N WG representatives could show up to the beginning  
of the HTML WG meeting and propose a breakout session on  
internationalization. I would expect the issues you cite, and  
internationalization in general, to be a topic of interest to many
