OK, this I understand and accept. But if an open standard such as the OTF specification uses terms such as "language" and "script" with specific and well-defined meanings, is it helpful to end-users to then re-define those terms within an adjunct package such as Polyglossia or Babel ? Just as with Unicode, or the TEI, is it not better to stick with well-established and standardised usage rather than invent a (La)TeX-specific usage that can (IMHO) only lead to even worse confusion ?
