 Why don't you ask them why it should be changed, and just stop there if they 
don't have a good answer? Why fix something that is not broken.

 openSUSE actually bundles together even translations for some extragear 
stuff. And, as a user, I'll much rather install czech translations for few 
apps I perhaps don't use rather than translations for all the languages in 
the world I definitely do not use.

about that?
