Thanks for the clarification.

I'm willing to support such a priority increase now; but first, please come
up with a list of specific things that a window manager needs to do.

We can't just say "add 10 points if the window manager is
internationalized" without telling the possible thick-headed American
package maintainer how to determine whether it is or not.  :)

One item would obviously be:
  + The window manager should use XmbDrawString() instead of XDrawString()
    for non-error/non-diagnostic text output.

Please come up with more, if there are any, and I'd be happy to make a new
policy proposal incorporating your suggestions.
