Well, some of the settings do have to do w/the country --- at least the 
currency sign does. And although for example some Hispanic Americans may 
prefer a Spanish translation, they still would want $ to denote the currency 
(and perhaps the imperial units). I don't know how the preferences for things 
like the decimal separator vary though.
