translated into?

Yes, that is the current suggestion. The assumption is a developer 
would do that on the server.

Packaged web applications have not traditionally been the target of 
this specification - hence the missing localization features. 

Is that target for you Crosswalk + Cordova? If so, would it make sense
 to instead of the configuration document format of Cordova (it 
supports rich localization features both at the configuration file 
level, and using a particular directory structure).
