I would support Kevin's proposal. And the point you made about google  
is only half true. If I do use words which are "language  
independent" (google makes no difference between "reference" and  
"référence") I may come across any version of the guidelines;

Since it does not hurt any other functionality and unless someone  
shouts loudly in the coming hours, I would suggest that Kevin and  
David proceed further with this.
