Absolutely. Currently Fedora is not handling this very well, however a
possible solution would be to have multiple spins by regions (EMEA
region, Americas region, Asia-pacific region, Africa region) as some
companies do with their products. Also, a DVD with all the languages
should be considered, since I believe that for most regions having a
DVD-ROM is quite common.

Keep us informed! :)
