This means, that the docbook-xsl stylesheets don't have
translations for generated text, such as "Table of Contents".

I believe, that if you are using an unsupported language,
English is used anyway. So it's better to use "ml", so that
people can see, that there are translations missing in
docbook-xsl and can hopefully fix them before the next Debian

(I wonder, whether there is a chance to fix this without
touching docbook-xsl.)
