No, I didn't know that locale would affect the time zone. This means I now 
completely agree to leave localization as it's. It implies more than just 
translation of strings.

However, on the locale-module.pot there is some strings like:
The language %locale has been removed. Do you smell any inconsistency here? 
Should it be The locale %locale has been removed?

Both are good to me.
