Yes, if you look at the XeTeX mailing list you'll see that many users  
of this variant of TeX are linguists or scholars in the humanities.  
Hence the assumption (which I also tend to do at times) that TeX  
users are mostly hard scientists reading and writing English-speaking  
literature is in error there.
