However, surely the locations need to be accessible from any app and not
just from those that use gconf?

Yep, the folder would be in your homedir in any case. Or somewhere you
changet it yourself (if there is some capplet to set them)

Well, but how should non-GConf programs find out the name/location of a
directory?  I might assume that non-GConf programs will look for
~/Documents, but how should they know that I much rather like this to be
"~/Meine Dokumente"?  Ie. the directory name is

a) Not the english default
b) Not a plain translated dirctory name (this would have been ~/Dokumente)

But I suppose that there's nothing that can be done about, is there?

I would have the doorman set up the locale specific directories on first run. If at any time after, you wish to change locale, the control center can make a symlink to it. It would have to manage symlinks so you don't get a gazillion of them like was already mentioned. At the most you'd have one.
