I know that including all those templates in all my zope packages isn't
the best solution, but my main goal was to include Plone 2 in sarge and
I hadn't enough time to think about a better solution for translators.

Now that the packages are available, I'm wondering about how to handle
zope packaging and templates. I think that the best solution would be a
zope-common package with default templates for zope packages.

This sounds really interesting, can you please tell me more about it? 
If you agree, I'll be glad to help you with that.
