Well - what exactly is "core development"? :)

E.g. I consider localization for an end-user focused office application 
suite as core development.

You might change your mind, as soon as you see 20 Mails focusing
just on the question if a certain string should be
"via Doppelklick" or "per Doppelklick" - and all the discussion
would be in German. There are lots of discussions within l10n teams
to find the correct(tm) wording - and all this discussion (or the
result of this discussion) is important for the product.

So - imho this kind of discussion belongs to the OOo project but needs
to be in the translator's native lang.
