[XeTeX] XeTeX maintenance

To my mind, XeTeX /is/ the future of TeX.  The days of entering
"français" as "fran\c cais" are surely numbered, and it has never been
possible to enter "العربية", "ελληνικά" or "עברית" (etc) in an analogous
way.  Therefore, is it not time to petition the TUG Board to adopt XeTeX
as a formal TUG project, and to allocate adequate funding to ensure not
only its continued existence but its continued development, at least
until such time as a clearly superior alternative not only emerges but
becomes adopted as the /de facto/ replacement for TeX ?
