Hi Yves, Shaun, all,

I tried to implement the output of this thread in the spec - see
http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/drafts/its20/its20.html#LocaleFilter
does this look OK for you? David, can you put this on the agenda for
Thursday, in addition to
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-multilingualweb-lt/2012Aug/0093.html
just a small slot for people on the call.

Thanks,

Felix
