Yes, of course this is general issue, not specific to Debian JP.
But this is still a BIG problem to be pointed out.

It is practically very important to know what is acceptable and
what is not as identification. Does this mean Japanese driver's
license (written completely in Japanese) is acceptable in real ?

- communication on a phone between Japanese with much more substance

among them, there are already eight official maintainers.
