It used to be that we had a python-babel that also needed the data in
python-babel-localedata, which was shared by both the Python 2 and 3
packages. Now, we don't have it anymore. So probably, what could be
done, is move all the files in python3-babel, and get rid of
python-babel-localedata completely.

python-babel-doc is still the correct package name for the doc (unless
the amount of doc is small and could be integrated in python3-babel as

If that's the way to go, then python3-babel needs a Breaks+Replaces:
