This is a very interesting statement when I confront it to my 
personal field current experience.

The IETF' switch from the better internet to the more market 
palatable internet (Aug 29th) might actually correspond to this. Like 
a change wehad before from ITU to IETF. This time it is from 
internationalization to multilingualization (as a general metaphore 
in many disciplines). It might not mean many new SDOs but a possible 
switch from internationalizing (Unicode, IETF, etc.) to 
multilingualizing entities, actually from localization to subsidiarity.

I personnally locate the change at RFC 5895. The innetwork is stable, 
reliable, etc. the outnetwork is adaptative, at least on a community 
basis. Languages are good examples of existing communities. 
Technologies may also be (ipads, linux, etc). Architures may also be. 
I experiment the concept with the small IUse community slow emergence 
(Intelligent Use system extensions).
