I am not sure what XIM is. In any case, I don't think BiDi+dead-keys
should go in the same category as localization. The frist two are
technological, and require a programmer knowledgable in the system, but
which does not necessarily speak the language. The last is linguistic,
and requires someone who speaks the language, but may not necesserilly
know any programming at all.
As for components - some BiDi stuff goes in GDI - sure. Text rendering
is one obvious example. Adding BiDi to the Edit Control should go in
GUI, however. I'm not sure where bugs such as 1163 should go (currently
filed under GUI, but should probably go to GDI, as the underscores are
added by DrawText). 1158 is a definite GUI.
For those reasons I did not want to add a BiDi component, but rather a
