For users' environment, EUC-JP is preferred. UTF-8 is not very mature,
unless it is used only for limited range of softwares which we can
test and modify, such as the installer.

Sorry I am not very interested in translation. I think it is one
of labors which should be done for languages which OSes support
However, I am now working not only for Debian but also various upstream
softwares, because it is needed for these softwares' i18n. When I say
about i18n, it usually means about ability to display, input, print,
basic process (counting number of characters, extracting a character,
and so on) non-Latin/multibyte/doublewidth/combining characters.
These upstream-level effort will help i18n of any distributions.
