On the other hand, I intend to provide a XeTeX back-end for babel
in short. I've made some tests and I was able to typeset a document
in Russian with babel and a few additional macros. I presume I'll
start working by November.

Not that I like babel, but it's what most users want and what most
TUGs support.
