All:

I reviewed all of the "WONTFIX" bugs filed against HTML in Bugzilla, pursuant to my action item [I18N-ACTION-516]. The link used to search for these is below near my .sig. Most of the items are either marked with our satisfaction in the past or do not appear to be worth further discussion. Of the remainder, there are three categories: (i) items that we probably should discuss; (ii) items that could be resurrected but need additional action on our part; and (iii) one item of historical interest because we are still talking about it (list styles).

Here's what I got:

NEEDS DISCUSSION

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16958 (add support for leap seconds) [I18N-ISSUE-87]
we probably discussed this before, but best to be sure

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16956 (represent BCE months) [I18N-ISSUE-84]
dismissed lacking a use case from us: do we care to provide one?

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16989 (list style types) [I18N-ISSUE-135]
probably we do not want to re-open this, but perhaps requesting a health warning about the legacy list types in HTML might be warranted?


POTENTIAL INTEREST FOR A FEATURE REQUEST:

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16966 (add support for 13th month) [I18N-ISSUE-98]

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16963 (culturally specific week rules) [I18N-ISSUE-94]
This one I don't agree with HTML. The spec as written is inconsistent with many cultures week definition rules.


OTHER:

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
