This is a good idea.
Personally, I rarely use xterm, because it cannot display Japanese
character. However, for example, Debian menu system uses xterm
as a terminal-emulator on which console softwares work. With
'sensible-xterm', Debian menu system will be usable for Japanese
(, Korean, and Chinese) people because I will be able to select
kterm or krxvt. (AFAIK, they are only two terminal-emulators which
can display Japanese characters.)
