For a lot of cultures they are. But having 'name of the week' and magic 
gconf links doens't solve the problem either it makes it worse.

Having them set at first login (first not every) when your account gets
all the desktop setup works as they then keep stable names. Having the
ability in Nastilus to do

	right-click->Make this the default for->[Downloads|Photos|Music...]

lets you do any renaming in a natural discoverable fashion

Having them change name between languages (which may vary) is dumb, but
the XDG folk are IMHO at least right tht this isn't good enough.

A lot of cultures don't even use the same symbols as are found in "Mail" etc
let alone the words.
