I like your changes.
I'd like to add a fiew comments:

Why only in number and date/time? I think that 'locale' attribute can be
useful also in all other tags, such as i18n:text, i18n:param, etc. If you
are using a locale stack (as I proposed in one of my emails) then it will be
very easy to add this, isn't it?
I would do it myself, but unfortunately I am very busy at my paid work and
even have no possibility to checkout the CVS snapshot. :(((

The original document was xdocs/i18n.xml. I noticed there they are the same
with i18n-transformer.xml. Is there a good reason for having to sets of
identical documents?

Not yet ;)

Btw, the common procedure is to send a 'diff' from the CVS root directory.
In this case, you'd have one file instead of two. And also it's  easier to
apply the patch.
