That looks fine, but for what it's worth, I set environment variables
like LANG in /etc/profile and then source /etc/profile from
~/.bash_profile. Now that I think back, I seem to recall that I first
did this so that lxpanel would show the date correctly (it was showing
it in the American style). I like lxpanel. It's not perfect but it's
good enough and it only has 2 dependencies.

It's fine, ~/.xinitrc is the default for xinit so you don't need to
specify it. I just put the file somewhere else so that other users get
the same desktop. Also I can try other things in ~/.xinitrc and then
run xinit from the login prompt for testing.
