The idea is to have the messages displayed according to the *specified* 

How the language is specified has been considered out of the scope of this 
discussion, if I'm not wrong. But that's the idea.

Basically, there are 2 possible states:
1) Emacs new install → the language is the OS default
2) User setting within Emacs (allows for normal use and for l10n testing).
