BTW, I forgot to mention the link with the localization work, which
falls in the same area: given some company, university, etc. there is
very low probability that all language translations will be useful. Yet
Debian decided to install them all by default and you have to use
localepurge to remove a couple of hundreds of MB of translations on a
typical installation.

It indeed helps people to be able to select their own language in the
desktop when they happen to use somebody else's computer or a computer
in a public place, etc.
