Mind me asking who do I contact for the powers that be
? Canonical? Linux Mint devs? Debian Project? Linus Torvalds?
Thing with the Mongolian support, seems there has been some work done on this. There's a distro from Mongolia called Soyombo Mongolian Linux, which is flagged as discontinued by DistroWatch.

I think this concentrated more on Mongolian Cyrillic rather than the traditional script. Mongolian Cyrillic is relic from the Soviet era, but is still widely used in Mongolia, but not Inner Mongolia, China, where I'm living. Linux Mint and Ubuntu both support Mongolian Cyrillic just fine, but not traditional Mongolian Script. Probably would have to find some willing devs that have a working knowledge of Mongolian Script.
The other issue is MS PowerPoint compatibility, which I think is a known issue anyway, and apparently work has been done on it. If I was creating presentations from scratch using say LibreOffice, it wouldn't be a problem. However I download and share a lot of PPTs with other teachers. And everyone is mostly using various versions of Microsoft Office.
