Well, a facility for l10n of messages — both the standard Validation messages
as well as the UI in general and any Fatal Errors and such — so, yes, I mean
I18N; in the sense that it facilitates L10N.

The real motivation for this isn't actually to achieve L10N, but rather it's a
way to move hard-coded text strings out of the code and into a resource file
somewhere. In terms of my motivation L10N is a nice bonus arising from this
rather than the other way around, but the end result is (intended to be) the
same.


It is _not_ a reference to anything charset related, conneg on Language, or
anything in that vein; those things fall under the category «Core Validation
Issues» as far as I'm concerned.
