Ummm... I don't really like it. This way, English and French would
appear in every package, Spanish would appear in most of them. Yes,
Polish and Romanian would appear only in -europe. -namerica and
-samerica would be too small.

...Maybe something like what you proposed (substracting the most common
languages), and an extra one: koffice-i18n-major_lang (Including
English, Spanish, French, maybe one or two more).
