Sorry for causing confusion, I was being too brief.

I meant that the mechanism we currently have in LUNI (i.e. a resource
file of externalized strings and a helper class like Msg to load the
string and format it etc.) can be duplicated in each module that has
externalized strings e.g. for exception messages.  Of course, each
module would only have its own messages.

In this case the code is quite trivial so I don't see a big problem with
duplication.  At runtime, each module is a self-contained JAR with it's
o.a.h.<foo>.internal.Msg and string catalog in the JAR file.
