I know it's been this way for like forever.  Just wondering what kinds 
of attachments there are, and pros/cons of each approach.

Honestly, part of this comes from my being a distro packager, but 
keeping these separate is ... a bit painful(1).  Also, fedora's release 
team keeps asking my why kde keeps translations separate, and I honestly 
don't have a good answer for them.

Seems only the SC portions keep things separate, I mean extragear 
releases bundle software/translations together, so it's not like it's 
something new or different.

(1) releases that kept software/translations bundled together makes 
their packaging simpler, imo.
