I saw that Shadi has already answered you on what he is responsible for. Until now all 
discussions were around adding these pages as part of the WAI pages under language 
negotiations (and I am responsible for the http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Translation 
pages). However, I was wondering whether it is makes sense to add these entries to that 
page, too, under the WAI heading. After all, we already have the checkpoints there, for 
example. If you think it makes sense, I am happy to do it sometimes this week.
