Hello Dominique,

Thanks a lot for your e-mail. 
W3C India has already initaited Mobile Web Initiative implementation in Indic langugaes. 
Richard's web page [link you have provided] is indeed a good starting point of discussion and provide few building blocks.
While addressing the need of Indic language support in Mobile Ecosystem in India , we find that issues range from device manufacturers and OS developers , Service providers and Mobile Content developers.
We have already started working on Mobile Rendering Engine and Fonts development which would enable seamless display across platforms and devices. 
Work also being initiated on Mobile Ok and its implementation in Indic languages .
We look forward to meet you at WWW2011 at Hyderabad and share our experince and thoughts.Your vision and direction would be basis of Mobile Web development in India
BTW, We are planning a focussed Mobile Web Conference & Workshop sometimes in Aug/Sep 2011 in India to accelerate its growth in India. 
With best regards,
