I can agree with the above but...

How do you distinguish to have a @null-text="I18NKEY" wrapped in a 
I18nMessage but not on the value at the label-path?

A sample:

I have a collection of interest rate number and on the "null-text" I 
want to say "pick the intrest rate you'd like" in a language dependant 
way. With your proposal even the numbers would be warpped into a 
I18nMessage as it is an all or nothing rule but they will (fingers 
crossed) not find a key in a i18n catalogue.

Actually we use different i18n catalogs in the same page (menu catalog, 
business term catalog, etc.).
