Thanks for the feedback @aphillips.

We've dealt with language issues for messages exchanged between the 
controlling side and the receiving side over the communication channel
 (the spec now includes guidance for developers and a related 
example), as well as for passing the locale from the controlling side 
to the receiving side (now a SHOULD in the spec), but not really for 
the list of available displays.

I don't see how the spec could mandate anything on the topic, but it 
could perhaps point out that receiving user agents are encouraged to 
advertise the language and direction metadata along with their display
 name. I do not know if that it is actually doable with usual 
advertising protocols on the LAN though.
