I don't really understand why you renamed it this way - while it does
indeed fit better for folders and such, *SYSTEM* is a rather bad name
for this, at least as I understood it, this mechanism could well be
used by third party applications as well.
And if not, it should probably not end up in a public header.

How about just B_TRANSLATE_NAME? And I would definitely make the mechanism available to third party applications, especially since Haiku releases ship with some. :-)
