I don't get it.  What about X itself, then?

Even with MIT's contribution considered to kill X itself as an
example, some of the important components (to me, as a Japanese ;-)
such as XIM, and some add-ons such as Wnn (up to version 4) were
contributed by Japanese companies for sure, and I imagine there are
similar examples throughout the X distribution, including hardware-
specific servers etc.
