This contains key/value pairs with the key indicating which field in the UI that particular

Hi Brian,

I think I missed this message originally, and Jessica drew my attention to it.

It's been 4 months since this message was sent. Has there been any
progress on making the strings come from actual docs per the original
func spec?
How does the current implementation deal with l10n?

My concern is that 'temporary' becomes permanent in a lot of cases,
and the key-value pair system with what appears to be no capability
for l10n is troubling.
