On the contrary, the i18n issue is very much current practice. Take a
look at It
has been agreed, however, that most of the i18n issues are to be
addressed in a document separate from the 2.0 spec, which I hope to
produce soon with the help of Gavin Nicol and Glenn Adams.

The main concerns for 2.0 w/r to i18n are not to close the door, and
not do something we would regret later.
