    Dear Hans,
    Thank you for your inputs. My approach is not a linguist approach,
    but a multilinguist one. Meaning I am interested in the technical,
    political, economical, cultural support of the linguistic diversity.
    What we try to evaluate is the effective technical needs of languages
    to build a language multilingual data sheet that can be used to
    support multilingualisation and facilitation technologies. An
    application is for example the support of linguistic domain names.
    All the best.
