Indeed, well understood.

I think so. For the French it is also to help people not so good with 
English, I thought. But that is a specific goal then. Not a general 
solution or relief.
What I do see, is that on the Dutch list people that are afraid from 
BugZilla, post to a list so that people can discuss and someone file a 
bug, if needed. Looks a bit as the French process.

Hmm ;) nice direction to think about. Wording and timing (place) of such 
a hint my be crucial.
