Good so far.

Yes, it is.
Special mailboxes should be localized if, and only if, the file on disk has
the original name. So, if I wish to call my sentbox "Gesendete
Nachrichten", I don't have to do anything, because that's what "sentbox" is
localized into anyway. If I rename it to something else, say "Gesendet",
that's what it should be shown as.
If I designate a folder to be the inbox, I don't want it forcibly renamed
to "inbox" on disk or shown as "Posteingang" if it's on-disk name is not
Even so, I may want to rename a file named "inbox" to have it show "Inbox"
in Balsa, without renaming it on disk.
