priority of x-window-manager

Hi all,

It might be too late but Mr. Sano kindly taught me the mechanism
of x-window-manager and suggested me to consult the mail

     * Subject: Bug#53758: [PROPOSED] Policy for "x-window-manager"
       virtual package and alternative
     * From: Branden Robinson <branden@ecn.purdue.edu>
     * Date: Thu, 30 Dec 1999 19:51:04 -0500

+           otherwise add none.</item>
+         </list>
+       </p>
+       <p>

Then I would like to propose one more condition;

"if the window manager is internationalized then add 10 points"

I think that the default window manager of Debian should be 
internationalized so the above condition is reasonable.

PS. I do not subscribe debian-policy so please CC to debian-devel
also but not to myself because I do not want duplicated mails ;)

Thanks in advance,		2000.3.3
