could you imagine the joins needed for something like that ?
and how tall that table will become ? Or if you don't use joins
how many extra queries per page that will need?

With a query builder, and having an array of the columns and tables.
(i'm not talking about the .install, all the .install does is  
create / maintain
this array, drupal itself knows how to spawn tables based on this array)

You could define individual column of a table to be translateable ,  
and a
query builder could automatically join in the correct language version
of the table.
