What a coincidence. A few days ago I wrote some text regarding 623 issue
(but not posted) which also mentions consensus issue:

  Consensus problem
  Unicode support is particularly hard to have the consensus, as
  the benefit/impact of the specification is significantly different
  among people of different regions in the world.
  As Zope's popularity is becoming worldwide, difference of the impacts
  of cultural-sensitive specification is becoming larger. For instance,
  while one region may get benefit from one change in specification
  without problem, other region may suffer from it.
  Also, it's harder to realize/measure the impacts on different regions,
  as it requires deep knowledge of different cultures. The difficulty
  of I18N lies rather in that aspect, not in technical difficulties.
