How do you define "the current language" in Emacs?  That's the main
problem here (as in any multi-lingual environment).

AFAIK, Emacs lacks infrastructure for providing language dependent
character properties, which differ for the same character.  However,
unless and until we come up with some useful definition of "the
current language", which itself might need some infrastructure, it
makes little sense to have language dependent properties.
