I favor the proposal to simplify.
1. I think we somewhat overkilled it in the first place
2. This was noticed by Keith Moore - Area Director
3. Several implementors have shared their experience regarding complexity,
I agree now is the BEST time to make these corrections to the spec and I
believe the change is justified based on early implementation experience.

Well, to be honest we shelved implementation of NLO until some of
these issues got resolved (the current implementation just uses the
current locale, which for CUPS covers 99% of all our users).
The proposed changes would definitely make things a lot simpler and
still support language changes "on the fly". I think it would be a
mistake *not* to make the changes before 1.0 is finalized, since once
it is finalized we're probably stuck with it as long as IPP is around...
