I would like to propose that unlike what existed under Sun and Oracle, the linguistic communities 
_including_ the English speaking community, are all identified by a specific language marker and 
that all the lists that do not use that language marker are explicitly multilingual.

The status quo under Sun and Oracle came from the fact that both Sun and Oracle were American based 
and mostly English speaking structures but we have no reason to reproduce that in the TDF.

That basically means that:

All the English speaking lists are

And that all the lists are multilingual.

This is the only way to ensure that no linguistic community has more power in the decision process 
than any other which is a basic requirement for all democratic process.

There are enough multilingual people in the respective communities to ensure that the communication 
gap is bridged in all those lists.
