Actually, it just points to the need for guidelines, perhaps beyond
i18n.

There is no checklist (that I am aware of) of critical things for web
page designers to be aware of.
The validator is one. Another is not to break links by continually
reorganizing the site and not redirecting from old links.

What document could you point at, that would give designers a (final)
set of checks or a list of "must-do"s?
I looked a while back and couldn't find such a doc.
