email-arch -- comments solicited on I8N

2008-03-08 20:37:46


A concern has been raised about the email-arch document's silence on the question of internationalization. Here's what I've added to the changes sections, for now, to explain my view of the dilemma for the document:

                     <t hangText="Internationalization:  ">

                     The document contains
                     no discussion of this important topic.  Frankly, I have not
                     thought of what the document should usefully say about the
                     topic and am particularly worried that the problematic and
                     fluid nature of the topic would cause the architecture
                     document to conflict with the reality of work that is
                     underway.  Offerings of candidate text for the document, to
                     deal with I8N are encouraged.</t>

I would appreciate the list chatting about this, briefly, to see if there is anything approaching consensus. Given the above text, you won't be surprised that I will consider anything less than a substantial consensus as meaning that the document should continue to be silent on the topic.

I don't consider that a desirable outcome, but am very worried that anything else could derail the document's publication.
