Thanks for the hints. XEP-0107 helped a lot for clarifying moods.

Unfortunately seems to be no serious considerations for
internationalization at all. (I guess I can't blame anyone since these
are already in use so their hands are tied.) Many of these terms
translate completely differently in their physical and emotional
senses. Having to find something that can be used for both will be
kind of unnatural for some of these terms…

If anyone has any hints for "Evil", "Depression", and "Surfing" it'd
be great. Thanks in advance.
