I'm no longer in the FPC, but I will say that I like this proposal. The
only thing I would change would be to add a suggest when
translating/transliterating to see what (if any) other distributions
have done for said package to maintain some sort of consistency when
upstream refuses to provide one.
I would like to see this addition as well. My position is that
transliterating from unicode at the distro level is going to be much
pain. The more cross-distro/packagers collaboration there is the less
of a problem this is.
