After looking at way too many accidents, I disagree. In many other sports signal conventions were adopted long ago. Kiters need to pay attention and adopt some of this common sense stuff to avoid problems.

Please don’t spread chaos & confusion, edt! Just listen to Toby’s sound & reasonable initial advice:
Thumb up = Launch
Tap head = Bring the damn kite down
WTF more do you need
Why do ppl complicate life
This is actually all you need to know. If there is anything else wrong, there are enough signals with bodylanguage that everyone understands.
Shake no with your head, make an X with your arms, run/walk towards the kite so that the lines slack, pretend to have an elliptic attack ... so many things that everyone in the world will understand no matter where they are from.
Having too many 'standardized' signals, will just make things harder and make it easier to misunderstand.
