Re: [ui-best-practices-working-group] Prefer proper horizontal ellipsis (U+2026) over three dots in "Menu Item..."?

Automatic replacement of *arbitrary* strings is probably not good, but the operating systems specify the use of one or the other in particular at the end of menu items that require further input. To the best of my knowledge there are no language specific exceptions to this rule, so the risk of confusion is very low.
