Do such descriptions justify bug reports of severity=minor?
Well, I would guess wishlist is the right way to go and the language
should go into debtags information as suggested by others.  The language
a program is written in is completely irrelevant for user applications
and might more confuse user than beeing helpful.  For librarie-dev
packages it might be helpful because it is relevent developer information.

Thanks for pointing this out
