No, the i18n proposal revolves around consistent on-disk names (such as
"~/Desktop") and translation in the user interface. Sure, letting the user
configure all of their 'special' directories gives you i18n "for free", but
you lose the consistent on-disk names.

These really are two separate issues, which we shouldn't conflate.
