because the people on -this- side of it don't speak, for instance, chinese. or 
at least the vast majority of us don't. due to our developer community 
profile for most of our apps, i18n bugs just wouldn't work well without a 
host of translators.

for other forms of communication, it should be possible to grow end-to-end 
communities that speak a given language around application development, 
promotion and industry relations, artwork, user support, etc ... these can be 
completely $LANG centric with "bridge members" that triage important 
information up/down/side-stream as required ...

but i'm not sure it will be feasible, at least in the short/mid-term, to 
realistically build full i18n communication channels between the world and 
the core project members in a way that reaps dividends.

iow, instead of trying to globalize kde central we should perhaps be trying to 
regionalize kde global.
