Heh, I wondered the same and pointed that out to Josh on IRC earlier
M17n expands to "Multilingualization"; I do not think that is a common
enough expansion that people won't think "how do they get from

using that instead of "multililngual" (if grammar allows) would be
Whether or not it is applicable at all is another matter, of course.
