At the moment madoko lets you set the language specific names of automatically generated caption prefixes (Figure, Table) and Headings (Contents, References). This works great so far but perhaps it might be possible to use "dynamic defaults"? In latex there's a package called polyglossia which contains the file polyglossia.dtx where all the language specific standard terms (contents, references, tables, etc.) are defined (among lots of other things). Perhaps you could use the definitions from there and set the defaults according to what language the user defines in the preamble?

Another thing I wanted you to ask for is another macro to set the label separator. At the moment it is set to "." but I'd like it to be a ":". So, for example, instead of "Table 1. <caption>" I get "Table 1: <caption>". That would be great! :)
