Hi Jean-Francois,

I think Pearsons' translations should be in contrib or msub at first,
as in the case of 'code'.

In Japan, ja_JP (or ja) is now under the control of Ja Sakai
Community. But we, Kyoto University, need to revise several words and
phrases due to Kyoto University's local culture. I think the best way
to manage such localized bundles is using a variant of locale like
ja_JP_Kyoto as you suggested

In this sense, I think there will be a lot of variants of locale in
the future something like:

  en_US_umich, en_GB_hull, ja_JP_K12, ...

I think we need to find a way to manage these locale with variant.
