With respect, Daniel, "reality" requires recognising
the fact that most of the world does not speak English
(in any of its variants) as a first language, and that
we who are in the privileged position of being able
to discuss standards for future software specifications
have a duty not only to recognise this fact but to
build in this recognition into specifications currently
under discussion.
