For accessibility this is used if there are renditions for Braille, or Audio for example so this is definitely required.

For example, if I had a copy of Tom Sawyer in English, French, German, etc, it could all be in one package, and I'd be able to toggle between them?  At least being able to go to the same chapter (or a given location) and switching between languages might be extremely useful.
