Fully agreed.

After the next few days, I am going to start an effort within

It would be a good start, IMHO. I would also consider useful some info 
about the current status  (i.e. "No support" for the time being, "In 
progress" in a couple of months?),  links/descriptions of various Indian 
localisation teams, perhaps place where testers to be could add their 
contact info, links to good fonts incl. descriptions, etc... Since there 
has been several mails regarding this topic (e.g. search the list for 
"Devangari"), it would be good to have a page with basic information, to 
direct people to it, first.

Please let me know off list, if you need a Wiki account.
