In general this discussion is probably making too many assumptions on 
the extensions authors. Those who wanted translatable extensions had a 
sort of framework to put string in PO files (which I never used and 
which I remember very vaguely, but it only worked for StarBasic); and as 
far as I know it was very rarely used. In general, remember that an 
extension can be written in any language, including no language (there 
is plenty of non-code extensions ); so extracting 
strings or enforcing coherence will work optimally only for extensions 
that are developed by the project.

The "timeline" gives you all details.
