From Tracker:



The 'name' manifest member does not provide a way to indicate the language of the string. This may be necessary for proper presentation/rendering of the name, since, for example, different fonts might be selected for different languages (such as when selecting between Japanese and Chinese).


Note: this was addressed by [1] and I am only forwarding for completeness.

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
