My knee-jerk reaction is:

First draft in one region. Second draft in all regions (either
cross-posted or some sort of joint global policy list). Formal request
for adoption from one region. All regions accept or reject it as
written. The proposal is not adopted in any region until it accepted
in all.

Each binding global policy is written in only one language, regardless
of region. Translations for convenience are non-binding.
