This is simply not true, for instance on Mandrake (an RPM based distro):

$ cat /etc/rpm/macros
%_install_langs en_US:en

Which means only en_US or en will be installed. In places where all
languages are desired all can be used instead.

This is usually not done because it increases your install size for no
benefit for most people.

I don't think we should worry about localizing error messages from the
server. As far as I can tell Apache doesn't.

But if we decide we really want to do this, it's something that can wait
until 2.0.0 when we have an opportunity to modify the protocols in
radical ways.
