It might be worth having an official translation of the Writing Modes
spec into Japanese! I think maybe I should add more pictures and
rewrite some of the orthogonal flows sections to be more understandable
first. ^_^ But I think it would be useful and there is enough interest
to make such a translation as a project, perhaps when there is a REC?

Hiroshi, would you be able to suggest improvements to the translation
terminology? Maybe the person who is maintaining this one can make
such changes.
