is there a reasonable good checklist of 'details' people are suppose
to be looking for? Its very easy to forget about CJK users or the like
if you personally never have to deal with the tech issues that raises.
 Last time i checked the closest thing we had was from the desktop

Is that enough of a guide for devilish details? accessibility and
internationalization are mentioned.. but they have buzzword qualities
that might not sink in. Does this need to be re-formulated or at the
very least re-packaged and presented somewhere more prominent?  It
would be nice to have a somewhat standardized set of checkbox items so
as each package came up we could weight the pros and cons of competing
details that need to be considered.
