The main issue with "get from network automatically" is that you
want to have reproducible builds no matter if you have or not access
to the Internet/network. All buildds should build the same source.
Also, the source that the buildds build should be the same and
adding automatically later the translations, without human
intervention means that the developer would test one thing upload
that, while the archive will contains some other stuff because the
buildds will fetch the translations.
What happens when your i18n server has a problem? Suddenly all
packages loose all translations? Do you keep the old ones?
