Thank you! I'm going to Italy for one week tomorrow so if you don't
ear from me next week it's normal, but I should be available

Actually the .dtx would be only on CTAN, the .tds.zip can include the
other files.

I'll do that!

It would make sense for me too, It would be more clear.

It also makes sense for me, the file can be in its complete form even
if languages.dat is not, so the first solution seems better.

What about the english and usenglishmax things? Are you ok for the
change I proposed? If ConTeXt needs something else, it can make a
little trick by hand, or it can also be done on LaTeX's side, I can
modify the table accordingly. What would be the best?

Thank you,
