Hahaha, good point. I was thinking more along the lines of someone who
has been educated about quantum mechanics in Lojban (without, necessarily,
contact with non-Lojbanic physicists). I would prefer "correcting" it
where one can. And someone who comes into Lojban to talk about Q. Mech.
would simply have to learn its words for the same stuff, just like any
other foreign language word. But I can see how other options are
justified and probably would seem more natural.

Currently, jbovlaste will accept data for 70 languages.
