I have added lineno, numline, and bigfoot to my list. I think the
general packages for formatting footnotes should remain in the general

Leads too far, to my mind. ledarab also seems not to be in TL.

As far as your and Pierre's suggestions on fonts are concerned, I
agree with Karl. Too general. Leave the fonts for everyone who is
interested in them, don't label them for the humanities only.
