 Like written in #debian-www, if people are still aware that in the
special areas for news entries and similar where data gets incorporated
into other languages entities still needs to get used (this won't change
before _all_ languages are converted to utf8!) then I am all for it and
see it as a step in the right direction.

 Thanks for bringing this up!
