In a followup to my own post, I noticed that someone in alt.anime.gundam
created a petition for a Bilingual release.

Also, you can email Bandai via a webform here:
http://www.bandai-ent.com/gundam/c_contact1.cfm
I sent an message stating, in a calm and rational manner, how important a
bilingual DVD release is. I pointed out the amount of money I spend on anime
DVD's and Bandai products, then basically pointed out in no uncertain terms
that I would under no circumstances buy dub only DVD's. I encourage you all
to do the same ... Princess Mononoke was saved, and I say Gundam fans are at
_least_ as vocal as Miyazaki fans.
