I agree. I am the module maintainer.

The next version -4.7- won't need patches anymore -unless we want to go
for some new features, of course...

Well, that one, let's take it easy. The current i18n.module has too many
hacks and workarounds to avoid core patches, and would need to be
reworked to be a core module.
But we are making progress :-) Quite slowly though :-(

Hope to see you around helping and supporting the idea of 'multilingual
Drupal' -whatever form -module, core...- it takes at the end :-)
