I believe Brian had been following a line that there was no substantiated 
foundation to the objection;  i.e. that the I18N folks had failed to show 
any specific harm caused by the current proposal.  If I'm right that this 
is the current position, then preparin a response based on our research of 
the design space seems to be missing the point.
