Yes perhaps you are right and if many Debian developers
think in the same way there is no problem.

As I am not a developer yet so I posted the request only 
because I simply think it necessary for Debian.
(This is the first reason why I do not write and package it ;-)

The reason why I think some discussions and/or agreement
are necessary is

- it might be better if many packages adopt sensible-x-terminal
  so agreement is necessary.
  (it seems only the maintainer of language-env expressed
  approval to the request)

- also I was taught and knew that this was already discussed (or 
  caused bigflamawar?) so it might be necessary to get agreement.

BTW there is almost no response and I wonder

- this means there is no objection?
- many of you are already bored with this issue?
- only neglected?
