Well, then, how about x-terminal-emulator?

I found recently that hanterm(X terminal emulator with Hangul support)
sets priority 30 as x-terminal-emulator whereas kterm (X terminal 
emulator with Japanese support) sets 21.

krxvt (another X terminal emulator with Japanese support) sets 25
and xterm sets 20.

Is there any policy?

Okay it might be not so serious problem but I think that 
update-alternatives can not handle these complicated situation 
well any more.

Thanks for your great efforts, Debian now becomes the most 
internationalized Linux distribution, I believe.

But it seems some mechanism of Debian does not advance at the 
same rate.

Well, Debian provides us very sofisticated mechanism i.e.
sensible-pager and sensible-editor but, unfortunately, Debian
forgets the most basic one, that is, sensible-x-terminal.

If X terminal emulator is not selected correctly, sensible-pager
and/or sensible-editor will be almost meaningless and update-alternatives
does not provide an enough capability to handle this highly 
internationalized Debian system, especially in the case of 

Please consider to provide us sensible-x-terminal as soon as possible.
