Those tests are labeled as language tests but they are also intended for
input method testing, what is more related to i18n IMHO. On the other
hand, they are more properly handled by the l10n because of their
requirements. So maybe we just need to add a link in the l10n tests
template pointing to the i18n installation tests cases along with some
additional instructions, because I'm sure that most translators are not
aware of i18n test cases.

Hosting it as a test day is a great idea, so we can have l10n and i18n
guys together. I can send an email to the l10n list asking for
collaboration. Software translation deadline is on 2010-08-31, so we
could have the test day on 2010-09-02. There is an open slot. What do
you think?
