Dear Ishida and all I18N members,

Thank you for your comment! We made an update on the DWBP document [1]
according to your suggestion. The following text was included in the
metadata section's introduction:

"Publishers are encouraged to provide human-readable information in
multiple languages, and, as much as possible, provide the information in
the language(s) that the intended users will understand."

Please, let us know if this ok for you.
