I am looking at provide i18n support for my libxslt based application, part of

It seems wasteful to me that translators could end up providng more than one 
set of translations, one per GPL'd applicaton, when there is nearly 500 
untranslated error message strings to be created/handled.  Is there some way 
this can be avoided?  ie pulling all error messages into a libxml2  file and 
providing translations from there if  host system supports POSIX locale.  If 
provided this wouild mean that xmllint/xsltproc would have the core 
translations it needs as well.

  I don't think libxml2 or libxslt error messages should be provided
directly to the users. I expect software to provide their own messages
and I18N layer. This also avoid to select one I18N implementation 
mechanism and dependancies on such implementation.
