As have I.  I also made comments a long time ago that the MIB should
have other-language support (specifically, I think I mentioned that it
was unlikely the language would come out perfect the first time and
that a completely new language might be needed in the future, without
deleting support the old at the same time).

So, I have to agree with David that "late in the process" is a bit
misleading.  Though, the WG did make the decision a long time ago to
not follow these opinions, and David is just restating old advise.  It
doesn't make it more likely it'll be followed at this point though...
