I suspect we may be talking about two different questions.  I am
talking about code that is part of Emacs.  (I said so explicitly in my

If they want their changes to be installed in Emacs, they must write
the comments in English.  We do not accept changes with comments in

That rule applies to all GNU packages.  See the GNU Coding Standards,
section Commenting Your Work.

You seem to be thinking about code that is not meant to be part of
Emacs -- but there is no need for a rule about that code.
