I agree that doing that would remove the most offensive part of it, but 
unfortunatly the flags are there for a purpose: 

They help non-english speakers to find their own language from a default 
installation, and they help people like me if I accidentenly select a wierd 
language I can't decifer.

Because of this I believe the flags should stay.
