Hi Ralf, 
I'd like to postpone the Japanese stuff to TL 2009 because the table
only mentions paper sizes but no names.  In the menus I prefer to have
names like "A4" instead of "210 true mm, 297 true mm".

Japanese paper sizes will certainly be supported by TeX Live in the
future, but I fear that it's necessary to discuss this with people from
Japan before such things are carved in stone. 

Thanks for the link, though.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
