Yes.

I share your concerns and haven't forgotten the discussion. E.g.
//www.freelists.org/post/haiku-development/haikui18n-Re-Localization-of-files-and-folders,13

The present shared code of Tracker and Deskbar lent itself to
these, IMO, non-invasive changes. If we want to make  larger
changes, I'm guessing that will need to be done as part of the
refactoring of Tracker. (If we do things now in Tracker's list
view mode, that doesn't do much good for drill-down menus and
Deskbar's leaf menu.)

FWIW, if you drag an entry to Terminal it presents the real entry.
I have not done much testing, so there could be unforseen effects,
but from what I've seen so far, the Model name appears to be mostly
for display. I hope that's not a bad assumption.

I hope to finish up soon by looking over the apps and figuring
out how to best provide catalog entries for folders.

Tracker folder windows with a path in the window tab or with
the navigator showing currently show the real path, which is
somewhat confusing, having opened folder Åäöäöäöåä you find
yourself in /boot/system/apps. In Deskbar, however, seeing
Åäöäöäöåä in place of Applications might be totally expected
and non-confusing.

I see it as an experiment which we have to evaluate.

/Jonas.
