Colin, I did not want to sound too much offensive. A bit, maybe, but
that's often a good way to start...or awake a discussion. So, please
accept my apologies if my ranting was, or sounded, too offensive to
you. Gracefully ranting in a foreign language is not always easy..:-)

Sure, we we can reasonably answer the we (l10n/i18n people) agree to
avoid asking for these i18n:xx tags..:-)
The current need is a way to easily find all localisation-related
issues in the BTS so that i18n people may fix them easily (most of
these are either tagged "patch" or should be).
Indeed, a l10n tag would be better than i18n as most of these issues
are translations ("switch to po-debconf" could be considered i18n,
however...but anyway, most of us make the confusion...:-))

I second Javi's proposal.
