The reality is likely to be somewhere in-between. For example, the PT-BR localisation of OOo
was the subject of extensive discussion in Portuguese about exactly how to translate various
aspects of the UI, none of which would be of great relevance to English-speakers but which
was still development discussion. The same would be likely to apply to every locale. 

Since there will inevitably be unique development discussion in each supported language, does
your direction here mean every localisation needs to be a separate Apache project?
