I think this is a good enough interim solution.

How much space would the i18n stuff actually occupy when installed?
The distribution tarbals weight like 2MB for each language. 
I lean in direction of making separate package for each language
eventually, and adding them into a separate pkgsrc category/directory
'i18n'.  kde2-i18n would then become meta-package.
