This would never be possible with an english on disk solution, but is
perfectly (and extremely simple!) with the current solution. I'm not
sure what you are arguing against.

There are multiple options:
1) Use an english locale
2) Rename the folders to whatever you want
   Just renaming it in nautilus will work fine.
   If you do it in a shell you need to also edit the config file.
3) Don't use the user directories
   Two approaches possible:
   a) disabling the feature in the system config file
   b) just remove the directories, they won't be recreated

No such automatic switching is done, as I have said previously. 

To handle the case where you initially log in in English before later
swtiching to your final locale we do however ask you on login if you
want to switch to the new directory names. Just click on "no" (which is
the default) and select "never ask me this again".
