Well, I can only talk for Dutch OOo community but this is how it worked 
in the past for us.

We had a userlist inside where all was discussed 
on/about localisation  ( level of Native Language)

If we found issues or problems we couldn't realize within that area, we 
went over to the userllist L10n from OOo  (worldwide level)

On the L10n all issues from all NLC came together but they merely 
concerned localization as is.
It were more technical discussions and issues that arose during 
translations. (like for instance adjustments to GUI if a string was too 

On L10n we also monitored status of translations and work to come and so 

So in our case it was more a two step ladder, keeping small issues on 
low level and the rest up to L10n
