I don't see your logic here.

The developers and maintainers would have to do the release management, 
packaging and annoucement.

The translators and documentation writers would have to keep track of 

The packagers would have to keep track of new releases, more dependencies 
and more build scripts to maintain.

For a user of a distribution/OS that doesn't split packages, that's more 
packages to install and keep track of. For the distributions that do, it 
might be a nightmare to adapt.

Users who build from sources would have to keep track of more packages, 
new dependencies, new build orders, etc.

So, how would it be easier for everyone involved?
