OK. I was thinking notifying in reportbug would be CC but it is not. I
will write Henry Lin and debian-chinese-big5 (it is actually not big5
lol) into CC list.

I won't expect it appear in Wheezy, but I think Jessie (Wheezy+1)
could be a target for the fix.
Since this is a minor issue it would be OK to fix in the next release.

The problem is that it is more difficult to have consensus on new
users. Basically many Debian, Ubuntu and even Fedora/RH users are used
to the translations for a long time.
