its nice idea most just usurp the english policies to start with anyway when they need it so having a base line on meta would be good though probably it would best to have it set up automatically in the incubator stage so that they get moved across when the projects takes the big leap forward and the community that develops the project can develop these policies as they grow. It also means that as part of the jump these pages will need to have been translated as well.
