Localisation (en_gb!) is definitely a key thing for future Haiku releases. In 
future, I'm sure localisations will live within the project, so there should be 
no need for seperate distributions just for this purpose. For the temporary R1 
timeframe, localised distros will be entitled to a "Haiku Compatible" logo (no 
API changes) which is acceptable IMHO.
