This was first intention: increase awareness, share knowledge and reduce 
effort duplication.  Localizers teams are different in their skills and 
cunning -- some still fight in isolation, while others may already have 
a cure.

Sure, this was my second intention (by priority).  But true fix for l12y 
bug SHOULD work for all languages and requires specific testing.  See 
bug 394516 as an example what can happen with obvious solution when it 
comes to l10n nightmare :-)

Bugzilla l10n team is only 2 weeks old -- way too young to get radical :-)
