I don't really agree with this argument. 'www' is known worldwide as
the indicator for the 'main' website of any organization. So although
'www' has its roots in English, it's really quite general.
I'm sure he was joking. Ha-ha-ha.
But the argument is overreacted by all means, All langauges are on the
startin pages, <countrycode>.wikipedia.org/ leads to the national page, I'm
very satisfied with this way of handling.
