Yes!  When non-European people talk about internationalization,
they often talk about displaying and inputing their native character,
such as Kanji, Hangul, Cyrillic, Thai, and so on.  A window manager
is a software on which many softwares run.  Thus a window manager 
which cannot display native characters avoids many softwares (which
are internationalized --- Netscape is an example) to work well.  
Thus I support Atsuhito Kohda's idea to add points to "internationalized" 
window managers which can display native characters.

Please read a document on internationalization which is found in 
DDP (Debian Documentation Project) web page.
