Title of the document

   <Shervin> [13]https://github.com/w3c/alreq/issues/88

     [13] https://github.com/w3c/alreq/issues/88

   Richard: Three different encounters suggesting to me that they
   thought our document only covers the Arabic language.
   ... Because of our title.

   <r12a> [14]https://github.com/w3c/alreq/issues/88

     [14] https://github.com/w3c/alreq/issues/88

   Shervin: If someone is surprised by finding out that the Arabic
   script covers other languages too, they can take a look at the
   abstract or the very beginning of the document and learn that
   Arabic script can cover more langauges.
   ... So, my suggestion is that the current title is good enough,
   but if we absolutely have to do that, my suggestion is the four
   titles that I wrote in the issue.

   Richard: I agree that the title is described in the document
   and its educational. But the problem is that some people won’t
   look into the document because they don’t think it includes
   those languages.
   ... This is the case that happened when we were discussing the
   document with those three teams.

   Shervin: It’s a tough choice to include the knowledge of the
   document in the title.
   ... I don’t think that it adds something positive to the
   document, but if we can have a better, clearer title, I go with
   ... It might also help to decouple the languages into sperate
   documents, like Arabic Layout Requirements and Persian Layout
   Requirements, but I thought that is not our desired option

   Richard: Yes. Decoupling does not work because we might want to
   include Urdu and other langauges.

   Shervin: Changing “Arabic” to “Arabic Script” might mean that
   our document is only about the script, not the whole writing
   system of Arabic, which can include topics like justification.
   ... But I think it won’t be a problem with our audiences. So
   I’m fine with that.

   Behnam: I agree with the third option.

   Mostafa: The third one is fine by me too.

   Richard: I can change the title then, because I want to update
   other pages that refer to our document.

   <r12a> Discussed during telecon. All agreed to use third option
   above, ie.

   <r12a> Text Layout Requirements for the Arabic Script
