I do not think that this would be a good idea.  My view is that those
in-document strings translations have nothing to do with locales, but
with the language of the document.  It is as if one didn't install the
babel french package for LaTeX if french locales were not installed.

I think that this is not really a replication of the issue.  The issue
is probably along a in-document string translation file not found, or 
not the correct one, maybe an old one, it is not that the language is
not found.

This is already done like that in tp/tests/run_parser_all.sh for the tp/

And I agree that it is very strange that install-info tests start
failing now, and, for example not for me though I use a french locale.

Indeed, those files are wrappers around tp/tests/run_parser_all.sh that
call this script with the test name as an argument.  run_parser_all.sh
always uses a tests-parser.txt file with all the tests for a directory, 
but can run only one file.

The files in tp/tests/test_scripts/ are generated by
