It can be OK to accept features which are only working on a basic level.
But if there are bugs/incomplete parts of a new feature. We should
know the bugs which we are adding to Blender & accept them as TODO's.

To say "Its OK because it doesn't crash" is not re-assuring,
Please at least take the time to explain exactly what fails so we have
the possibility to fix.

Suggest for 2.73 release we should have minimum:

- Clear description of what is left TODO.
- User review from Chinese & Japanese users that its working on basic level:
  (that the feature is usable for text field input. even if not
working for _every_ IME engine, it should at least be functional for
- Final code review that IME isn't causing new bugs for non IME users.
